My cable connection through router is like 56K connection

Hey, I am a total newbie and have only had Linux for about a week, so go easy on me lol.

I have had Windows XP in the past but wanted to try Mandrake Linux, everything works fine and I have got an internet connection, but this is where my problem starts...When I was on XP I had a fantastic quick connection, however now on Mandrake, the connection is real slow and it can take well over a minute to just load up the Google starting page. The router I used indicated that it wass compatible for Linux and I'm sure if it wasn't I wouldn't have any connection at all...Can anybody help? but your going to have to go slowly as I'm a total beginner.
