You have a really lousy Internet connection.  All of the behavior you are describing is typical of poor commiunication between your viewer and SL's servers.  You make a change, and the information is either mangled before it reaches the servers or it takes so long to get there that your av is way out of sync with everything around it.  Your Internet connection may be fine for normal web browsing or playing online games, but SL is much more finicky.  So, first get off wireless.  That's a bad way to connect to SL for most people anyway.  In your case, it may be robbing you of bandwidth and adding interference that you really don't need.  Then ....

(1) Try shutting off your computer, unplugging the router and modem for a couple of minutes, and then plugging them back in and restarting. That simple step may clear up everything

(2) Add Google's free public DNS servers to whatever your ISP assigns you as a default. Here's how >>> http://code.google.com/speed/public-dns/  Should using Google as a DNS not work for you then see here for alternate servers, or grab DNS Bench to help you locate one. 

(3) If things are STILL messed up, contact your ISP. Maybe they are working on their Internet connections. Mine go down for about 20 minutes once a month or so while they are vacuuming dust out of their servers, or whatever they do.
