For the past few days; my internet has been going relatively slow. I do have an excellent signal, but I realize that has nothing to do with the wireless speed. Is there anything I can do to fix this???

Disable your wifi and plug in directly to the router. Go to Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test and test your speed. Compare that to what you get when you're connected wirelessly.

Try powering off your modem, router and system for a couple of minutes then power them back up.

(Power off as in remove AC)
