Ok. I'm going to try to decipher this post a little because it a bit confusing.

Ok. You bought a new computer and moved your old one into your office. You ran an ethernet cable from the room with your router to your office to connect your old computer to the router? This means that the old computer and the router are in different rooms right?

Ok. So the internet takes a lot longer to load on just the old computer you moved from beside the router to the office or on all the computers in your house?

This doesn't matter too much yet.

This does become the main question. And the most important information is what you left out. How long is the etherent cable that the old computer (in the office) is using to connect to the router?

So, you're using a wired or wireless connection? If you're wired, is the distance much farther than what it was before? If so, then you could be experiencing interference--try moving the ethernet cable in different areas. If you're wireless, then it could be interference from multiple sources (metal, walls, etc). Hope that helped.
