If your using TCP optimizer or dr TCP (my self i have both) i would check out the tweaks you have done on this web site  http://www.dslreports.com/tweaks

then do a speed test.  I used TCP optimizer  but after running the tweak test on dsl reports  it suggested changing the rwin. after a few changes and reboots I finally got that everything looked good.  my speed went from  4 to 6.5 and it seems to stay around that .. my isp is pipex and i am supposed to get speeds up to 8 meg.  hope this helps
