    You're not really giving us much to go on here, to be honest. Is this an internal network or are you referring to an ISP connection for, say, home use?

    Nathaniel,

    Please refrain from commenting on threads where you have a lack of knowledge. Based upon the information contained in the OP and the attached picture, there seems to be a problem with DNS. Slow Internet speeds can be a result of DNS problems even through the speed of the Internet connection itself is fine. The delay is a result of slow response or timeouts from DNS queries against the DNS server.

    How's your Nic set up? Does it get the IP and DNS from a DHCP server?
    Check your router's DNS settings. It should be on a WAN/Internet information page. Then check the DHCP and make sure that there's no other DNS servers specified. If not? Then make sure that DNS relay is enabled and that the router's IP assignments are with the router itself as the primary DNS. Alternatively you can specify different DNS servers for DHCP. 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 (if I'm not mistaken, are Google's DNS servers)

    OP never answered questions and hasn't been back in 12 days so I doubt Fireflycph, you will get an answer to your questions.
