    Have a look at the link in my signature and then the M&M Config link.

    In short; disable anything you don't use (including security holes from legacy settings such as WPS) and only enable what you do need and use for your network, including new SSID's, specific (not 'Auto') channel and bandwidth selection) and making sure to power down your entire network (and your ISP's equipment) for at least 20 minutes, 60 minutes preferred) before powering everything up in the order suggested.

    After doing that and have been satisfied that the network is fast and stable for a few days, you may also want to visit the amtm Step-by-Step link also included in my signature below.

    With a spare USB drive, you can give your router many more capabilities including a swap file and many more features too. :)
