craghopper: There are not to many of the experts online right now .I can tell you they are going to ask the type of connection you have ,the connection speed your ISP is selling you,your OS,& tweaks you may have already applied.

You can start by reading this link.

I will assume you are running Windows XP (if not I will add the information later)

Windows XP registry patches (only install the patches that apply to you)


Windows XP SP2 patch (if needed)


Cable-nut tweaks (apply the tweak that goes along with your advertised speed)


If you are running a router try testing your connection with the modem connected directly to your system.
