When I try and access the modem during these painfully slow downs, it just wont fully load the page for the modem, or it loads some of the page and says that it has done loading. I am using avant browser rather than IE but from what I understand it piggy backs off IE anyway. I did another stats page last night and copied the info to a txt fiule on the desk top, but seeing I am at work, can't post it just now, but will post it later if I get a chance to.

Am I reading this wrong, 6400kbps does not equate to 6.4Mbps because that should be saying then 64000kbps?
Its not a matter of supposed to be, its a fact that the connection between your modem and the DSLAM in your local exchange is 6.4MB/s downstream. Your upstream rate is 160kb/s as that is the normal throttle limit for non FS/FS plans, if you were to move to a FS/FS plan you could expect 800kb/s upstream, however with 160kb/s upstream you can still achieve 4-5Mb/s downstream on this connection.
I presume the above posted stats were from when you experienced poor speeds, as the modem is reporting it is synced and connected at the same/similar speeds as before it or the line not a limiting issue.
As previously noted the line connection is only part of your speed limiting between your PC and a remote server, there is your PCs ability/setup, the backhaul provision at your exchange, and any plan limitations placed by your ISP. What is quite clear is your line is very unlikely to be an issue.
Can I suggest you try another PC to confirm any limitation is not within. To have only 50-80kb/s on a connection that is running at 6.5M/bs indicates something out of order, but not likely the ADSL part of the system. If changing PCs achieves no improvement then talk to your ISP about it, but I suggest you try and ask about aspects other than your ADSL connection.
Well I have had an interesting Sunday afternoon. I unplugged my existing system, and plugged in another running Win XP. I also changed modems (to DSL-302G) and put a new network cable in to play. THe speeds I got with this new system were more than acceptable. I then attched my main system back up and got it connected. I then switched netwwork cables to see if the problem lies there.... mmm the DSL-302G didn't show any Ethernet light, but when connected with new cable its fine. Can't recall if my old cable is a cross-over or straight? Wouldn't have thought this should have made much difference? Anyhow, I did get a connection, but am still having issues, so I guess the next step is to check out my system with another NIC, and see if the issues lies with the onboard NIC. If that is not the issues then I think I will try a clean install of XP Pro. But first I want to make sure I have everything backed up I need. I have a feeling the frest install may well fix the problem, but I will know once I do it.
Again many thanks for your patience and assistance. btw the speeds I was been getting with the other system where in the area of 2.2Mbps.
