problems with wireless connection from all my Apple devices

Customer Question

problems with wireless connection from all my Apple devices (iMac, Mac Book pro, iPad, iphone4 and Apple TV) to Airport Extreme connected to Internet via Netgear ADSL2 DGN2000 Router. Wifi speed max 0.5 Mbps wired around 9 Mbps! Exchanged faulty Airport Extreme yesterday made no difference. been through all sorts of troubleshooting with no result.

The wifi speed has been very good until recently. Devices used to connect to Base without problem. Now if i want all to connect to AE i get Double NAT issues unless I set the Mode to Bridge (as recommended), all devices connect to Router instead of the AE!!! First thought that's the problem. So ignored the recommendation, now connect to the AE as before and still no difference.
Need help with going through the settings (i may have overlooked something or simply lack the knowledge ;) ) Need to get my Mac's connected again asap as my office depends on the wifi connection.
