Identified why my network was being weird.
(Some clients very slow, some fine)
One of the wireless APs had lost power connection.
So, anything wired was ok, anything on the other AP was fine.
Most things trying to use the offline AP were just scraping a poor connection to the other.
Hence, it looked weird, stuff was all still working, just unevenly badly.
