Windows 7: Slow downloads from the internet

Slow downloads from the internet

This started yesterday, when I opened google, Bing or Yahoo, The graphics took a very long time to load. This also happened on Facebook when a video took nearly 10 minutes to load. I checked the internet speed using 3 different programs and all of them gave nearly the same measure of 3.5 Mbps. I thought at first that this was due to the DOS hack that was done but now I'm, not so sure. My computer is set up as a wireless connection to the router and nothing has changed. I've recycled the router and that didn't help. Any suggestions?

Internet speed is from your computer to the provider. (3.5 Mbps is quite slow this days).
Access speed can be very different as it passes though many servers or nodes. Yes, the hack attack can be related and responsible.
Wait some days till things get normal.
