I have verizon DSL, using IE 8, and the last few days my internet has not been working well at all. Webpages load up very slow, if they load up at all. I'm not sure what the problem is. If anybody could give me some advice on some programs to run to find out what the problem is, would be greatly appreciated.

According to that speed test my average is WAY WAY WAY WAY WAY low compared to the average speed. I barely had any bar in the graph and the average was nearly to the other side of the graph window. Says my download is .20 mb/s upoad is .13 mb/s and ping is 88 ms. Odd thing is that it usually doesn't take a long time to download stuff. Its just webpages loading up that is so slow. I'm not really sure what the advertised speed is. I know its usually really fast and right now it's just not doing anything at all.

I've tried firefox. It wasn't really any faster.
