Installing a router?

Seriously, the net is flying now. Is it just fluke luck, or?

My guess is that you had a bunch of garbage traffic coming in and/or out of your computer. The router eliminated this "noise" and now you've got your full connection speed to work with.

Were you using firewall software on your computer? If not then maybe you were letting in a bunch of traffic that the router's internal firewall has now put a stop to. Can't think of another reason why a router would speed things up really.

Or someone was connecting to your computer through an open port, and they now can't get to it.

You may want to check your system for rootkits, trojans, and spyware.
