Slow DSL speed!!!!!!!!!

I have Earthlink 3.0mbps DSL, and a netexcell router... i get 600k connections on my main computer(1) (which is this one) and my other computer(2) downstairs, i get 2.8mbps... and whenever a friend bring their computer over 2.8mbps.... This is a custon built computer and never had problems with it.. i have literally talked to Earthlink support for a combined > 5hrs... those people are idiots and make me wait long periods of time, to evaluate my problem, only to finally say something... "please wait longer, thank you!!" lol.... :evil: :evil: :evil: i have been looking all over the internet for about 2 weeks now, with no luck... so i decided to turn to this form for some help... i have changed all wires.... changed network cards.... diconnected other computers... disconnected the router and ran the comp straight from the modem, still no avail.... i always get around 600k.... the speeds were tested with 2wire.com and cnet.com. very frustrated since my friends come over and get speed 4x as fast as mine... again please help!!!!!!!!!!! and thanks....

computer(1) is as follows...
2.0ghz AMD Athlon 64 3000+
1.5 Gigabytes of Ram
120 GB WD HD
MSI NForce 4 PCIe MS-7315
Diablotek Nvidia GeForce 6600GT PCIe 16x

  2. I have checked out portforward.com in the past to try and fix the problem... the problem that i have with it, is that i can't figure it out... the evaluation for it doesnt allow me to actually use the program, so i dont know if it will fix the problem or not... if you will, please give me some more information on how to run the program, or maybe their is just something that i am missing on the site... thx
  3. thank you for everyones help.. i have solved the problem.... i am getting correct speeds of around 2.5mbps now... apparently... hehe... i tinkered with the "wrong" settings with system mechanic pro 6... lol... i set everything to default... and now she works.... hoody hoo
