    Windows xp home edition SP2
    AOL brordband silver 512kbs
    BT voyager 105 USB ADSL modem

    Surfing the net is fine
    but when i try and download (on eithre firefox iexplore or AOL) downloading is relly slow.
    It can start of about 100kbs but then after 5 min or so it can be dipping in and out of 0-10kbs
    Surly i should be getting download speeds of around 300kbs as i have a 512kbs conection?

    if you are getting less than 90 % of the bandwidth that you pay for then put it on the ISP to correct the problem or tell them you'll change to another provider
