AIM: # 3 Posted on 24.1.06 1238.20 | Instant Rating: 4.38 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. Ignorance is bliss for you, hell for me.
What are the specs? If it's that old, you may or may not be better served just sticking with Linux and putting, say, a clean install of Mythbuntu on there.
