Very slow wireless connection through verizon fios router

view story

https://bbs.archlinux.org – I am having troubles with my wireless connection to my Verizon MI424WR router.  I have used both wicd and networkmanager and both can connect but I get very slow connection speeds (~25 KB/s download) and am occasionally losing packets when I ping sites.  I have previously connected to other routers without any issue, so I believe the issue to be with the connection to the router.  Windows and Mac machines can connect to the network without issue and are getting the speeds that they should be.  If anyone else has had this problem or could offer advice it would be much apprec (HowTos)
