Ran a speed test and the results seem to show that my internet speed is pretty good (http://www.speedtest.net/result/925677007.png), however, on any browser that I use on either of the computers connected to my wireless internet are extremely slow all of a sudden (within the last month). Any suggestions?

Moved to appropriate forum.

Since the slowdowns are occurring on more than one machine attached to the same wireless network, it could be a DNS problem. (Unless like chas mentioned your hard drives are close to being filled up)

You didn't mention anything else about hardware or other details, but you might want to take a look at your DNS setting. You have a fast connection but that doesn't mean much if the DNS server your ISP is using has recently changed or is having difficulty keeping up with traffic.

I have plenty of HD capacity - only using 104gb/595gb

How would I go about checking for a DNS problem?

When I log into Citrix and use the browser (IE) through Citrix, it works well and is 10x faster than the browsers on my desktop. Does that make sense?
