    I have 2 computers that use DSL prodided by verizon. One machine is a win98 SE OS and the other is a win 2000 server OS. On the 98 machine my download speed is 478 kilo per second and the other machine is 528 kilo per second. Is that about right or should I be getting better results?

    For a long time, the download speed for Verizon DSL was 768 kbps. I believe it's now 1500 kbps or 3000 kbps. It may depend on what part of the country you're in. I'd give them a call and find out. 478 - 528 kbps sounds too slow to me.

    Using CABLENUT 4.08 with the correct settings and doing some registry tweaks may likely improve the speed.
