Dismal Speeds on qwest

Recommended Posts

Hey, first time asking a question, but. I have the supposed 7mbps qwest premium dsl with msn. Lately i've been getting only 1 to 2.5 mbps. i've tried some of the tweaks posted but i couldn't find any specifically for my connection. I guess i kinda also think there may be larger problems but I cant figure out what. I've got spybot s&d, and avg for protection and an actiontec dsl modem.

You guys always say there are no dumb questions...

Thanks
