Low speeds with wireless netgear dg834g

Hi. I have a Freeline MT2000 connected to AOL via a Netgear dg834g and an ASUS WL-130g card. Recently my connection speed has dropped to that of dial up! My router stats say:

Downstream: Speed 2368 kbps Line attenuation 54db Noise margin 15db
Upstream: Speed 448 kbps Line attenuation 15db Noise margin 20db
However, when I do a speed test on speedtest.net I get:
Ping: 130ms Download: 126kbps Upload: 292kbps

My wireless signal strength and quality is 100% and noise strength is only 16%. I've tried every channel on my router but still the same speed. Its driving me nuts, even the AOL homepage takes ages to come on. Any ideas?

Can you keep this to one thread or it gets confusing.
