So I used to connect directly to the internet (eth0 to Telus modem which was plugged into the phone line). Recently I changed plans, and long story short I now have a Wireless Gateway 2Wire 2700 HG-E router (their model number).
It's basically the modem, a 4 port router, and a wireless access point.
I'm getting some odd slowness, and I imagine I misconfigured something, so some help is definitely appreciated. The internet speed is fine in Windows XP, and here is some output from my install of Slackware 11.0, in case it helps anyone get an idea of what could be wrong.

The router IP is 192.168.1.254, and I'm using dhcp to get an ip address from it. I'm not fooling with the wireless, this is directly from eth0 to their first ethernet slot.
I get the feeling my 'route -n' has incorrect entries. No idea how to fix it though (not really a network guy). Any help is really appreciated
