Ok I solved the problem. First I have a Dlink wireless N router and Shaw cable 15MBs spped. For some reason the only computer on my system that was acting up was my 1730. It would work intermitantly, fine one minute, super slow the next. I ended up resetting the router to defaults and reconfigured the wireless settings and presto the 1730 now loads pages in milliseconds. I was almost to the point of trying another Windows install and now I am glad I didnt waste my time. Odd that only the 1730 acted up.
