Slow connection. Help with Monitoring network

Specs: Vista / XP
Hello everyone. I am having a problem and I'm trying
to figure out what could possibly be making the
internet connection so slow. I currently have 2
computers connected to a Linksys WRT54G2 V1. One of
the computers has XP and the otherone has Vista
Home edition. Both computers, and even my cell
phone (using the wifi connection) have the slowest
internet connection ever, sometimes the page won't
even load at all.
I tried reseting the router but still does the same.

One thing I noticed is that the transfer led on the
router is constantly blinking, so I am wondering if I
have a virus that is taking all the bandwith or

Is there anyway I can check what is causing the
problem? Like a monitor application or something?

Thank you in advance.

If it were me I would (and in this order):

1) Reset the router to factory defaults and then reconfigure it

if that didn't work

2) Try a third party firmware on it like Tomato Firmware or one of the other 5 or so listed at the bottom of the page that link takes you to.

If neither of the above works, your router may be no good. I would then replace it.
