Here's a little trick that might help you. I use this all the time. First I want you to shut off your computer. next, unplug the power cord going to your modem. Leave the power out for about 30 seconds (they say 15, but 30 is my preference). Restore power only to the modem, and let the ready lights flash until the light is solid. The modem is now ready. You may now turn your computer back on. This usually helps a slow connection.
