Internet Got Slow

I have two computers and an X-Box 360 at home. All three devices run through a wireless G Linksys router, then to my cable modem, and finally to the wall. My X-Box is wired into the router while the PC's are connected wirelessly. For some reason, my Internet got real slow yesterday afternoon. When I ping a site, I'm getting a 95 or higher millisecond response time with 80% packet loss.

Does anyone know anything I might try to speed things up?

Hi Magus,

I'd suggest sitting this one out -- the chances are that your ISP is/was experiencing a slowdown in it's services.. If the problem persists, then we can start to get worried and look into things a little deeper.
