    i have an adsl broadband connection which is so slow i have to load youtube videos and come back after minutes so i can play the video properly without stops. i went to the cnet broadband connection site for a connection speed and it said mine was about 270kb/s. when i set up the connection on my vista i set it up as a broadband conection but when i try to get a connectiopn it says,"dialing attempt 1 ..." etc and so i guess it is acting as a dial up?i use a linksys modem and i have an inbuilt dialup connection port on my HP but this is not what i use so i don't know why it acts like a dial up connection. ( i never installed any program for the linksys but just connected it and set up the connection-could this be the reason why it is slow? does a linksys modem need an installation program because on the manual there is reference to a linksys program i must have on my computer but i dont have it
