Downloads suddenly extremely slow...

All of a sudden it takes me forever to download anything!! It started about a week ago and I didn't really pay attention to it being an issue until I tried downloading the same thing on my wife's laptop and it downloaded almost immediately but on mine it still showed a wait time of 2 hours and 38 minutes. I run virus scans and nothing comes back. Also when I try to watch a video now it runs for like 3 seconds then stops and buffers and repeats this process until I get fed up and close the video out. Any ideas as to what might have happened? I'm running Windows XP Home Edition on my Dell Inspiron 1520 Laptop while connecting to cable internet via wireless router from within the house. Thanks in advance.
