Hi Everyone:

       I am trying to help a friend of mine who connects to cable modem through a wireless base station or router who is experiencing very slow internet performance.  In fact, the loading of web pages and downloading of files is almost equivalent to the old 56K connection.

       Is there anything he can do to increase his internet performance?  

       Thank you.
