I've been using a Wireless connection for over 6 months. I periodically check my connection speed at www.speakeasy.net/speedtest and my scores are usually around:

Download: 1450 kbps
Upload: 300 kbps

Recently, I downloaded the program TweakDUN to try increasing my speed a little bit more. However, after installing it and using it for a little while, I realized it wasn't making much of a difference, so I uninstalled it. However, after running a recent speedtest, I'm getting these scores:

Download: 244 kbps
Upload: 187 kbps

I used to download at about 175kb/s, now I'm getting about 25kb/s.

Could TweakDUN have messed up my computer somehow?

Try rebooting your router first.
Then if that doesn't work, reset things to how they were beforehand.
If that doesn't work, it may be an internet provider issue.

Have you made your router connection secure? You might want to check and see that no one else is "sharing" your connection. Open the DHCP clients table and see which IPs are using it, and if they all belong to your computers.
