Hi dattans,wellcome to  the forum

is  your isp,  T-com Germany ?, have you tried any European tests  , and are you sure that your line is dsl enabled ? you are getting normal 56k dial up speeds , you say that you have been getting this from day one ,

have you spoken to T-com about this , as it would seem something is not right with your connection ,

Wow....those speeds are totally unacceptable.  With speeds like that, it's unlikely that it is your computer.  I often love to give the tech line "keep your computer running clean first" to users with slow internet speeds, but a speed like that HAS to be your ISP.  There can be many problems.  When I first got my DSL line, I had similar problems, along with dropped connections.  It turned out that, upon linking a new subscriber, Verizon crossed my line with theirs at the CO.  It could be a problem like that, a grounded phone line in your home, loading coils in your telephone lines at home, or many other problems.  Try www.speakeasy.net/speedtest , see how that works out (although this site's speed test is very, very consistent).  I would say that most likely, there is a problem with your ISP.  Give them a call, let them run their tests, etc.  Be sure to ask what your connection speed is at your router.  Knowing what the line speed is coming into your home can be a helpful tool as well.  My guess is that your connect rate is very low..which translates into a problem at their end....anyway, keep us posted!
