You might want tothe program TCPOptomise,  it may tune your xp system? to get faster speeds.
But your speed looks very average.

You really need to post your router stats. I.E. if you are like 100m from an ADSL2+ exchange, then those speeds are really bad; but if your are 4-5km from exchange, then those speeds are what you would expect.




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
