Windows 7: Slow and unresponsive internet: due to router>moderm>desktop?

Slow and unresponsive internet: due to router>moderm>desktop?

Don't know if this belongs here, but...

Just recently, my computer's interest acted all strange. First, it was slow in loading, and now it didn't and instead said "cannot display." After little help from Time Warner, and doing some experimenting; I have the Time Warner (TW) black box moderm and a D-Link router connected to it and my desktop, and I realized that now because the router has links to my XBOX and PS3 for online, when they're online they cause the internet to slow (both IE and Firefox, btw). It's only when they aren't online or disconnected from doing so that it is normal. Why is this happening, and out of nowhere, now? Does anyone know so they could help me? Please?

We need a lot more information. Your system setup. Your network configuration, your rated download speed, etc.

Well it is a Windows 7. I guess I don't know how to explain this computer of mine, maybe a hijackthis log would do?

EDIT: one idea is that it is just the router. HOw can I be sure?
