    have you done some basic house cleaning such as defrag and disc cleanup?

    have you run antispyware scans?

    have you downloaded or installed any new programs just before the problem started?

    my speed was 1.656

    i have cable as it is quicker than dsl

    another thing you could check are your phone line connections to the dsl modem. and degradation in the connections will also slow things down.
