Hi,

  I have installed a new Dlink DSL-300T ADSL modem, it all connects fine to the internet. But when I browse any site on the internet its slow, slower than dial-up. I have checked all the settings all seem fine, changed the MTU size to varying sizes, changed microfilters and cables.

All to no avail.

I have made windows XP use the DNS servers of the ISP and thats makes no difference.

I have installed the latest firmware from dlink makes no difference. I have attached a laptop to the modem and thats the same. I have tested the modem on another line and its fine. BT say there is no problems with the line.

Help...is there any option that I may be missing...

Cheers in advance

>The modem in question works just fine on another line.True? If so then it has to be your incoming line that is the problem.

That is why you need to post the current line status page from the modem.
