    After reading on the internet that you should repair disk permissions around once a month or something I decided to do it after not doing it for ages, so I go and do it, then shut it off and leave it for a bit, and then when I turn it on I open Safari and I notice that its taking a really long time to load Apple's Start Page, so I think nothing of it and turn it off again, then a bit later I turn on and I find the internet on it still just as slow.

    So I am wondering if its cause I did it or because of my router.

    Won't be that.

    Try resetting Safari - whenever Safari starts to get sluggish, resetting it really does fix most of the problems. Also, depends if you are downloading/uploading (uploads kill bandwidth) and what other users are doing on your network if any. Peak times on broadband affect speeds too.
