Router factory reset + wireless security has resulted in crawling browser speeds

I came home to visit my parents and noticed that they did not have any security for their old Linksys Router.

So I factory reset the device (they had created an admin password and then forgotten it) and then went into the settings and enabled wireless security and secured the wireless with a password.

After doing this everyone on the network (including those hard wired) have been experiencing extremely long web page loading that had not existed before. It is as if the browser would get hung up on something and then after a while begin to piece the webpage together.

I was wondering if anyone had any advice or suggestions.
