eberhardt2329, What plan are you on with your DSL?

is it 1.5Mbps -2.5Mpbs or 4.0 Mbps???

If your saying that the connection speed test is showing 450 kbps/sec, than I wouldnt complain one second.
In fact, thats what most DSL clients never get. You must be close to the office(DSL company) or your running a 2.5 or 4.0 Mbps which is T1 or T2.

If you really find that the connection is as slow as you see it is, run SPYWARE checker. You might have one running in the background thats killing the connection. Spywares take over the connection and it might be using the most part of the connection bandwith.

If you dont find spywares, change the phone cord thats connected from the DSL modem to the wall phone jack.

You must understand that DSL works with phone lines and you have FREQUENCIES that are implecated in this...If the phone cord is dying, so will the frequency of the signal getting to your modem...See what happens?

BTW, if you find any spyware running and than you delete it, reinstall the drivers of your NIC, since they usually they get damaged or corrupted...to avoid future problems with NIC drivers, reinstall drivers.

Keep me updated.
