Proud MacBabe. Happy everything to everybody.

I have exactly the same modem and a Linksys wireless router. My computer was taking forever to do things also. I unplugged both items and let them sit for about a minute. Everything came back to normal. I am sure you have done this but just in case, that is my 2cents.
In your address bar, type in 192.168.100.1. Hit Return of course. You will be in the modem configuration.
What kind of numbers are you getting? Click on Signal, what's your downstream and upstream levels?
Downstream should be 0v + or - 10v, and upstream not sure, I think 20 - 40 or something, but it's the down that affects downloads and the most important. If it's really low or high it's probably the lines outside.
