Windows 7: Websites time out

Websites time out

On Thursday, I was sorting out my backup sets for Norton, and I started backing up. Everyone in my household was complaining that the connection was bad, so I stopped backing up. But, nothing's changed, though everyone who are on wireless is getting a great signal, websites take for ever to load. This hasn't happened before, I'm the only one who is getting websites to appear as fast, but I have the router and modem in my room and I'm running off an ethernet cable. Anyone have any ideas?

Well since you have multiple computers in the house. I take it that you are using a wireless router.

Have you tried to just do a hard reset on the router to clear up any misunderstandings.

Yes, I have a wireless router but I'm connected to it wired.
How would one hard reset a router?

There are two ways to do it... You can do it software base through the WebUI under the Admin TAB....

or you can hold the RESET button down in the back of the router for at least 10 seconds.

I don't see a reset button on the back, but there is as button on the front like this:

It's tough to say from that picture. The button looks like it has something to do with wireless or a lock of some sort?
Might get an answer quicker with make/model #...

That button is WPS, or Wifi Protected Setup, basically you hold it down so that you don't have to type a wireless password in.

The reset button should look like a hole in the back of the router, with a button at the bottom. You will normally have to put a pen or something in to press it. They aren't always labelled but normally, they are near the power button.
