I have a 3Mb DSL connection and a 4300 Gigaset modem, with no router or other wireless junk. Can I tweak it through the settings and make it better?

I mean that it is plugged straight from the modem to the pc....without any obstacles.

No, your ISP sets the speed.

There are some settings you can play with, but mostly in Windows, and these are trial and error.

Assuming you are using XP.

If you have a modem to PC connection, make sure your Firewall is running, and maybe install a better 3rd party one like ZoneAlarm.
