    Please help asap!

    The title says it all. This is to two computers and an xbox. Last night I was in the middle of a game online when the internet suddenly went out. After restarting the router it came back on but the internet speed is HORRIBLE. When I plug a laptop directly into the router it gets around 30MB/s on a speed test, without it the same laptop gets about 2MB/s (same as wireless desktop). Xbox is unplayable online. I uplugged the modem and router. I even reset the modem and router to its default settings with no help. Same slow internet. Did my router take a dump? Do I need a new one? My router is a Linksys WRT110 the firmware is 1.0.02.

    edited- i meant directly into the router
