After going through with the verizon support.  I still cant figure out why it's so slow.  My setup is westell 6100 modem to linksys wireless router.  One wireless laptop, one hard wired desktop.  Both very slow on internet.  Laptop new.  Still was slow before linksys and laptop were added?  Any ideas.
