comment Should laptops remain plugged in when their battery is 100% charged?
Really? I have never seen this behavior. Most laptops will run slower when they are unplugged from power and running on battery, but if they have to slow down while plugged in without a battery that means that the charger is not supplying enough juice, and the battery would drain even if the charger was plugged in. In other words, citation needed.

comment What does load average mean in unix/linux?
As a general rule of thumb, you should divide the load average by the number of CPUs for multi core systems. So a load of 2.0 on a dual core system is roughly equivalent to a 1.0 on a single core system. This isn't totally true, because of things like disk I/O and network traiffic, but load is kind of a rought estimate anyways.

comment Wireless is slow, but only to the internet, not local connections
Unfortunately, this problem wasn't solved within the time limit of the bounty. If I could, I would extend it longer, but I can't.

As I understand it, wouldn't MSS clamping affect my wired connections just as much as my wireless connections?

No, I don't have qos-scripts installed anymore. I guess I did a full system reset since I last installed that.

I am currently running latest stable. I have set up qos-scripts in the past, but I am not sure if they are still running. I will check.

I have reset the firmware, and the problem was not resolved. There is no "manufacturer's latest firmware". The official firmware is OpenWRT. While buying a new one would make the problem go away, it doesn't fix it, mainly because I still don't know what went wrong.

Yes. Another router works fine all around. If it is a problem with the router being faulty, thats ok, but I want to be able to prove that. Another interesting thing is that this router allows me to switch out the wifi card, so just replacing the wireless card is also an option.

comment Wireless is slow, but only to the internet, not local connections
I don't think that the problem is wireless interference, because as I stated above, traffic between my laptop (over wifi) to a local server is quite fast, as fast as I can reasonably expect wifi to be. I have tested this with the wireless router on a clear channel (I did check that) and within a few feet of the laptop in question, it being the only wireless device connected. If this were simply that the wireless was universally slow, I would agree with you, and because of that, I have already tested everything you have mentioned. Thanks for the ideas though.
