Are you sure it's your connection and not your system? Have you tried something like dslreports to test your speeds? Also check your isp page for some kind of network status page and make sure they aren't working on it.
dsl doesnt always mean ull get fast speed, here in saudi the dsl speeds are measured in kilo bits not bytes, there are 8 kilo bits in a byte, so having a 64kb connection actually limits you to 8 kilo bytes down stream yeah thats how bad it can get here, my dad has 256 in his office = 64kb and he used to pay 2500 dollars a year, i think now its cheaper

Sorry to correct you, but there are 8 bits in a byte. Therefore 8 KiloBits (8192 bits) works out at 1 KiloByte (1024 bytes). However, if you have an 8 KiloBit connection, this does not translate to an actual 8 KiloBit download as part of the connection is used for packet information and other data used to ensure what you receive is what was sent.
If you're only getting 8 KiloBit download via dsl, then that is horrendous. :suprised: My old analog modem used to connect at 42-46 KiloBit. My DSL is now connecting at 2 MegaBit, giving me an approximate download speed of 256 KiloBytes per second.
8 kilobytes download on dsl, at my friends house, read clearly about that part, and thats cuz thats the slowest option availible here and the fastest is 256kilo bits which gets u a 64 kilo bytes download speed
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
