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 and very frustrated since my friends come over and get speed 4x as fast as mine... again please help!!!!!!!!!!! and thanks....

I have checked out 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
