Since no-one else has said anything, I'll make a few comments....

The login/password set-up shouldn't make a noticeable difference.  I
think that's a co-incidence.
I'm not saying that isn't what you saw, I'm just saying I don't think
it's the whole story.
It's tough to diagnose something like this, especially without a lot
of information.

Here's a couple of things you can try to help everybody help you.

Give us a little more info about your home network - even a little
ascii art picture would be great.  For example, we don't know if the
desktop connects thru the laptop (not likely, but...) or anything.

Does <> seem slower
than in general?  You'll notice it uses https....

Do you know how to do a traceroute?  If not, say so and we'll explain.
 If so, do one to a site that seems slow and let us see the results.
Note you might want to change the ip addresses of the last few hops in
the chain for privacy!

Does this help get you started?
