    Hi, Possibly, yes....could you read through this post, it contains a link from Frank Lavalee that looks very interesting....then, from his site, he gives a link to Speedguide page where you can tweak your system to improve performance with cable/DSL.....some good reviews of hardware there, too. http://forums.techguy.org/t116538/s.html

    edit- I see it's already posted....start tweaking!

    Hmm. I'm looking over the patches now, and I can not find which one to use. These are the ones, which are for Reg., that match my OS:

    sguide_tweak_2k.zip

    sguide_tweak_2k_pppoe.zip

    sguide_default_2k.zip

    Which one to use?

    What they are...

    sguide_tweak_2k = generic optimization for win2K registry

    sguide_tweak_2k_pppoe = If your connection calls for an actual login using PPPOE. some use it some don't

    sguide_default_2k = resets the registery back to the Windows Defaults.

    Hope that clears it up a bit!

    So, if you have to "Log IN" to your DSL connection with a username & password, use the PPPOE, If not, then use the first one!


    Good Luck!

    Then if you want to make sure things will be fine...


    Click on Start--Programs--Accessories--System Tools--"Systemm Restore"
    Choose "create a restore point" and it will make a snapshot of your system that you can revert to!
