It was very very slow to the typical speed of DSL, which is what ive got. i use windows XP, 2 wire connection, the computer im using right now is wireless on a router and my xbox 360 is on a wireless router, which seems to be extremly slow also (it takes me 5-10 hours to download a demo, which should take an hour tops), ive had this problem for a while now but it is starting to get really old, it takes minutes to get on a webpage and to start up my computer. Any help is appreciated.

Have restarted your router and modem? Have you added anything new to your phone system like an alarm system or satelite tv? Have you unplugged all the phones and removed the filter from the DSL line and plugged it directly into the wall jack? Have tested the speed at your ISPs site (if they have one it's the one they want you to use)? Try a test at Speakeasy.net to see how it matches up to the one you ran. If none of that helps call your ISP and have them run test on their network and your circuit. There are many foctors involved in the speed of a internet connection but you should get at least 50% of the promoted bandwith and average 70-100% . They call it best effort service.
