[Extreme] Extremely slow speeds and computer lagging
Hey everyone, just yesterday I was reading a thread in this forum about open ports for torrents and such. I'm using a WRT54Gv4 router. I changed the firmware to DD-WRTv23, installed Utorrent, enabled encryption, and did port forwarding. Ever since this change my internet connection is slower then ever before, this is regardless to whether a torrent is running or not. Sometimes connections to websites even timeout and I have to refresh them. I'm not sure what I should do. I know that I didn't edit any startup scripts for the router's firmware, could that be the problem ? Thanks for any help, I need to get this fixed asap.
