  1. Your online speed is mostly dictated by your ISP (internet provider). You should check their website to see if there is a faster package you can buy from them (most have a couple different speed tiers).

    You could upgrade the RAM to 3 or 4GB (you can't go higher than 4GB with a 32bit version of Win7). I would suspect that going from 2GB to 4GB you would see a nice bump in system speed. But your "online" speed will likely not change with a RAM upgrade.
  2. You might also need to clean your computer of virus or other scumware.
  3. if you have comcast cable check that you have the newest modem or one that dosci (sp) 3.0 without it your isp cand bond the cable modem channels. if your wireless check that you did not leave your router wide open and have leaches. also if you have older b/g wifi card or router it going to slow you down there. with 2g of ram you want to limit what loaded in start up to the right side of the windows task bar.all you should have at start up is your anti virus.
