Hello. Thanks in advance to anyone who answers. Sorry to just jump right in but I am desperate at this point. Here is the situation. I have four computers on a home network. Three laptops wireless and one desktop hardwired. I am using a Netgear MR814v2 Router and two of the cards are Netgear cards with one other card built into one brand new laptop. Using128bit encryption and all computers are properly configured. About a week ago they began slowing down to the point I can barely do anything with them, they rarely complete loading a page and hardly ever completely syncronise my groups without locking up. I ran a speed test on the Desktop (Hardwired) and it registered good on upload and download and on a local test it scored "Great". Here are the results of the wireless;

- download is 88% worse, upload is 24% worse I have run Spyware detection, Ad-Aware and AV programs. Have cleaned up all the drives, defragged and done everything else I can think of. I have purchased a new Router but before I replace routers I was hoping someone might be able to identify some other possible solutions.
Once again. Thanks in advance.J
