Routing problem with router-software

I'm trying to route my router to my modem because I'm having problems with intermittent slow connections. It's just me, one device, my router and my modem. Please look over my settings and the router paths that appear and disappear. There's anywhere from one to five. I made a static path that I thought would work, but the other four show up usually too.

The wifi is great here, it's provided to the modem from one central location, so that's after the modem which is the 192.168.100.1. My wifi is wep2 protected with a sixteen digit pword.

Here is the router firmware. I tried making another routing path to include the isp given as the network destination from the modem to the network as well. The 3rd Pic is the log from when I was logged off. It's been reset to defaults multiple times.

I didn't click any of the screenshots yet but if there is one device on this network and it is Modem>Router>Your PC then you should put the modem in bridge mode so that your Router can be assigned the external IP address. Further, you should not use WEP. You need to use at least WPA or ideally WPA2. WEP can be cracked so easily by a novice.

For all we know that is why your speed is bad. There could be people on your Internet that shouldn't be there. Speed issues can also be a factor of weakness in the phone line (noise) or even a lack of DSL filters. I think you mentioned you were cable, so noise there is represented by signal loss, measured in decibels.

I'd like your opinion on this firmware, does it look like it's been hacked? Idk if I can flash the bios or if that applies here, but I can replace the router.

My concern wasn't the firmware. I was concerned that weak encryption makes it easy for anyone to just join your WIFI and use your Internet.

Getting the latest firmware for your router is a good idea too, so you should do that. =)
