also install this http://dslnuts.com/patch/index.html

"Windows 95/98 vTCP Update

Symptons

When you are transmitting data over high-delay networks (for example, satellite links), transfer throughput may be lower than expected and the number of packets that is retransmitted may be unnecessarily high.

Resolution

For Windows 98/98SE users download the file '236926USA8.EXE'"

it shouldnt be that big diff, try updating the NIC drivers, also scan for spyware/virus

9. Download and update then do a scan with SpyBot http://beam.to/spybotsd and Ad Aware http://www.lavasoft.com/support/download to remove any spyware

10. ZoneAlarm firewall has known problems with dropping speed, i suggest to uninstall it and compare speed

11. Install Outpost Firewall http://www.agnitum.com or Sygate Firewall http://www.sygate.com/

12. Scan for viruses with your antivirus app, if you do not have one get one, AVG is great http://www.grisoft.com/us/us_dwnl_free.php

13. Make sure you have ALL of the latest Windows Updates

14. Download and run CCleaner http://www.ccleaner.com/
