    Ok, I'm stumped by my internet issue. Maybe you can shed some light on it.

    Ping is averaging 11000ms, upload 0.01-0.07, download 0.2-0.4
    Here's the setup: AT&T modem --> Linksys Router --> 2 simple switches --> computers

    What I tried:
    1. I plugged in a laptop directly to the modem and speed is back to normal.
    2. I swapped out a cat 5 cable between the modem and router and speed was back to normal for a few minutes, then bad again.
    3. I swapped out the router with a new one and speed was back to normal for a few minutes, then bad again.

    So the router is fine. I don't think it's the switches if everything is working fine for a couple minutes. Also, my wireless is fast and then bad again when I tried swapping stuff out.

    Any ideas?

    Linksys WRT54GL is my old router. I got a Linksys E1000 and tried that too. Both have same results.
