Why is Goldmine so sluggish?

Help, SQL connectivity issues are driving me batty!

We use VOIP at the (very small, there's just three of us here) office and recently switched to a new router from the D-Link cheapie because the old one couldn't really handle the upstream.
We've got four boxes here, three Vista and one 7. I am trying to convince the bossman that Vista is a piece of crap, and I'm making progress, but things are a little disorganized at the moment to make the transition smooth.
Now, we use FrontRange Goldmine Premium Edition 9 as mail/contacts/QB-integration program. It runs off of a SQL server that runs on a Vista box. The Goldmine instances get all their data -- inbox, archive, everything -- off the SQL server.
So, ever since we switched the router, things have been sluggish as hell. We've tried everything: disabling all firewalls, DMZing, opening any and all ports, and plenty of other redundant things. Nothing is helping. Goldmine is slow as as hell and tends to crash if I ever try to make a new contact and send an email with an attachment.
Running the program off the computer with the SQL server on it, however, is fine, so I've narrowed the problem down to the connectivity. We've tried to different new routers, and even putting the old one back on, but it's still broken. So, help? Ideas? Anything?
