    Recently (Don't know the main cause) but my connection seems to be rather slow thus' trying to stream Videos off youtube or any other site is slow and speeds only @50-150k rather then should be like @400-1MB'ish. also, webpages load slow as well.

    the Router WRT120N is saying "Your local network speed is faster then your Internet connection. This means that the bottleneck is *Probably outside your local network, between your router and your ISP." so what is the deal? our speed is 12MB too 20MB not sure completely. how can i go about fixing this?

    Basically just a simple setup. IP 100-149. DHCP Enabled. Wireless Enabled. WPA2 Enabled. must i contact my ISP for help?

    UPDATE: hmm... i released the IP and renew'ed it via Setup *Going into the Router's Setup and then rebooted the Router. idk what caused this conflict but i hope all is good

    Check your routers firewall settings, I've had an issue with mine restricting data-transfer rates (on a 6.0mbit line) to around 1.0/1.5mbit. If your router has SPI disable it and check your speeds using speedtest.net, re-enable it and check the speed again.

    Of course I'm only speculating, but you never know until you try.
