So I went to the store and bought a Netgear wireless router and usb adapter.
Somehow, I actually got connected!
Unfortunately, it is slow as s#!t...just like the old days on 56k. Pages load at a snail's pace.
Now, any ideas, anyone?

That is much faster than mine, and I never have any streaming or slow internet problems.
Same as with me.
router says speed is 54 mbps

It should... for the USB adapter.
BTW, when I re-install and update the software, doesn't it install the latest drivers?
Just thought of something, does the router have it's own Firewall? If so, should disable my XP firewall, right?
Correct... I don't mind the pixellation, speed matters more on a slow connection.
And I found that Opera just goes faster in Turbo mode because it downloads without the detail. Kinda like the dial-up accelerators used to work. It's quicker, but everything is pixellated.
