    Almost there, please help!...

    Hi all. I've gotten so far as to set up my new router and connect all of the other computers on my network, however the download rate for my machine is hovering around 5 kbps (or some ridiculously low number like that). I just did a fresh install of Lucid and everything else is running very smoothly. I have been awake for three days working on this and am so close I can taste it. I could finish this myself, but I would like someone who is well skilled in networking to check what I have and possibly put an end to this dilemma for me because I just want sleep! Anyway, here is my current router settings, ifconfig, route -n, and iwlist.
    So to summarize I just need to determine what is holding up my download rate. I'm sure it's something simple, but ultimately I'm still slightly noobish and don't Know for sure. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help:-]
