    In need of expert assistance PLEASE

    I'm rather new to this stuff and don't quite understand my results here. My connection has been especially slow lately on my Linksys WRT54G & MacBook Pro.
    I do have a password set on my network, so it's just me using it and I don't know why it's so slow; It feels like an old-school dial up. My BitTorrent is also slow and I'm starting to wondering if I should just contact my internet provider??

    If someone knows their stuff and can help me out here, What do these results mean? Or what I can do here to speed my connection back up to normal??

    Thank so much in advance!!

    ------ Web100 Detailed Analysis ------
    Link detection algorithm failed due to excessive Round Trip Times.
    Link set to Full Duplex mode
    No network congestion discovered.
    Good network cable(s) found
    Normal duplex operation found.

    Web100 reports the Round trip time = 0 msec; the Packet size = 1448 Bytes; and
    No packet loss - but packets arrived out-of-order 0% of the time

    Client is probably behind a firewall. [Connection to the ephemeral port failed]
    Information: Network Middlebox is modifying MSS variable
    Server IP addresses are preserved End-to-End
    Information: Network Address Translation (NAT) box is modifying the Client's IP address

    Server says [] but Client says []

    The theoretical network limit is 0 Mbps
    The NDT server has a 0 KByte buffer which limits the throughput to Na Mbps
    Your PC/Workstation has a 65.0 KByte buffer which limits the throughput to Na Mbps
    The network based flow control limits the throughput to Na Mbps

    Client Data reports link is 'RTT', Client Acks report link is 'RTT'
    Server Data reports link is 'RTT', Server Acks report link is 'RTT'
