WiFi Slow on Youtube/Streaming Video

About two months ago I converted my entire house to wireless. Since then, I have noticed that youtube and streaming videos are much slower to load. First thing I thought was since I went WiFi, I lost some bandwidth. After testing that theory, I found I stayed the same, if not got a bit of a boost. I have Comcast cable and even during peak times, I receive 20Mb+ down and 4Mb+ up.

I'm using a Cisco Linksys - E2000 router and a NETGEAR - WG111 USB wireless adapter.

On a side note... My Blackberry 9700 loads youtube videos instantly and I don't have any lag issues with my Xbox either. But, I'm not sure if this is apples to apples.

youtube has been sucking ass for me since google took over.

guess they used the server space for their ad software rather than the vids.
