IT Advice needed

My internet has slowed to a crawl - it's driving me crazy. I have a wireless modem on dsl (telus for anyone local who knows what I mean), and lately it's just taking forever to load pages.

I'm on a Mac (macbook) and according to Finder have bags of harddrive space left and wouldn't have thought it was a RAM problem. Is there somewhere in the Mac like in Windows Task Manager where you can go and see what's happening at a given moment? Also, could it be because I'm being invaded by some other user on my wireless network? I need to reset my security on the network - I wouldn't have thought that would affect it, anyway, but want to cover all possible bases.
