Dave, Whats the speed of your wireless? Probably around 54Mbps? Thats the speed of 802.11G
Your downloading at 11 or 12 Mbps, so you're router should not be the bottleneck. If you downgrade to 3.0Mbps, you probablt won't see a diffrence on your Page-loads, but you will notice your file downloads will take longer.
Keep in mind, we are happy with 1.5Mbps, and my wife watches TV on hers all the time without noticing any delays.
