This is almost certainly a network question more than a Usenet question, but I'm hoping that there's an easy and obvious solution.

Linksys Wireless N router (E2500)
Wireless N USB adapter (2.4 GHz) on a desktop running SABnzbd (Windows 7)
Using astraweb, 12 connections

I'm getting slightly faster downloads compared to my old Linksys WRT54G, but downloads seem to completely overwhelm any other internet traffic. I can't get to Google -- nothing but DNS errors.

I don't think I used any prioritizing settings with my older router; can anyone think of any way to resolve this?

Throttling would work, as others have mentioned - but I'd be suspicious of your router. I've had 3 different wireless models over the years from various vendors and have never seen all other traffic die. Slow down, yes, but not to the point that even a DNS lookup failed. vanilla slimfast mentioned trying a different firmware but if the Linksys is still relatively new, I'd consider returning it and trying another one. Or at least checking for a new firmware version before going to a replacement firmware.
