Upgraded the latest firmware in the router, reset your router and reconfigure it, check if your dsl modem is configured in a bridge mode if not configure your modem in bridge mode and reconfig your links router accordingly, that will fix your problem

I have tested my internet connection with my ISP and the connection is fine but the signal from my wireless router seems to be the problem. This just started out of the blue (no recent changes). Pages load...

Disconnect the router, and use an Ethernet cable to connect your computer's network-port directly to the cable-modem (or DSL-modem), and try the "performance" of Internet activity.

Wireless routers

If your connection without the router is only 30 mbps, the speed with which you will connect will never be greater than 30 mbps. Adding the router adds latency, so yes a router will always slow your internet connection slightly. 11 mbps is still pretty fast considering when you are downloading something from a website the average speed is about 270 kbps. My wireless router connects my laptop at 54 mbps, it is a wireless N router, which is faster than a wireless G. That could be another factor.
