    You could try TCp optimizer to open the bandwidth pipe a little more.

    309.1 kilobits per second is my speed, its so frickin inconsistent... lol oh well i guess thats all i get then, i just want it to be stable and like when i have voice conversations... it jumps because the connection stops on and off... idk if that optimiser thing fixed it, guess i should check

    Not much in there other than a lot on startup. You may want to try the router settings or hook the pc up directly for a minute and check the speed like that then you know for sure where the trouble lies.

    Remove the following.

    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page = C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\blank.htm

    hey who is your DSL provider , first tyr removing the wireless and do ping test and see if you are loosing as many packets as before if you are not and you still experinencing the same exact problem then it could actually be the ISP ;you may want to get in contact with them so they can run some test on the line check the packets and see if there are dropping anything at the Dslam
