I would start by looking at the wiring in the house (from plug in the wall to the Demarcation line) make sure that is high quality wire and good connections. Then move to the Phone Co., get them to inspect the local loop wiring for bad connections/wire. Then move to FiOS (fiber optic technology), this will produce some amazing speeds, but you have to work with the phone co. or move to a faster technology such as Frame Relay, ATM, or ISDN, a burst asynchronous comm is your best bet.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

If you use Windows XP Professional then it is possible to squeeze an extra 20% out of your internet connection. By default Windows XP Pro holds back 20% of your Internet speed for various services like windows update and spyware checks.
If you want to tap into this locked speed then make the following changes:
• Go to Start-> Run-> and type gpedit.msc
• Expand the Administrative Templates branch
• Expand the Network tab
• Highlight QoS Packet Scheduler
• Click on Limit Reservable Bandwidth and check the 'enabled' box
• Then Change the Bandwidth limit % to 0 %
Once you've done this click apply and restart your PC. After rebooting you should see a noticeable improvement in your net speed.
The biggest advantage is that N is faster than G, with a higher data rate. Whether this would make any noticeable difference to you depends on what you're doing with the computer. For normal use, just Web surfing, checking e-mail and the like, there's almost no difference between G and N. If you're into online gaming over your wireless connection or watch lots of streaming video, though, the higher speed might benefit you.
Keep in mind that any wireless link slows down because of signal strength and interference, so you'll never get the full speed under real-world conditions. If you're in an area with many other networks or your router is several rooms away, your N speed may be little different from G anyway. And switching to N won't change your line speed; depending on your ISP and connection method, N may not give any improvement over G.
I'd go with CAT-6, if your building a new home. While CAT-5 would probably be fine for the near future, CAT-6 has a much higher bandwidth rating, and would be able to pass more data at higher speeds, and would in effect, "future-proof" you home network.
The future is all about high-speed data transmissions, and as more and more things are getting connected to a person's home network (Blu-Ray players, etc.) you're going to be glad that you did...
Everything is getting "smart" these days, there are even internet enabled refrigerators; while not common-place today, who knows what the next 20- to 30-years will bring...
Do it now, or re-do it in the future. The price is a little higher, but thin kabout how much more it will cost you to have the CAT-5 ripped out to be replaced with CAT-6 (or whatever) down the road...
check your cable if it is connect to a modem or DSL/ADSL router then it must be straight cable;for more information regarding the cabling go to http://www.makeitsimple.com/how-to/dyi_crossover.htm;usually ip address and DNS address is assigned automatically by the modem or DSL router.so set your network connection to obtained ip address and DNS address automatically untill and an unless you are given the ip address and DNS address to be configured manually. check your ethernet card is working by pinging to 127.0.0.1;hope it sloves your problem
With only Cat 5 UTP cable segments, the maximum length for any cable segment is 100 meters, make sure that you don't exceed this. Also crossover cables are for switch to switch connections. You must use a straight thru cable from PC to switch port
lol the cost of your internet will only change if you call them up and change your plan. if you go out and buy a new modem it will go the speed of the modem....so basically having a broadband connection with a 1mbps modem is like trying to force an elephant through a mouse hole....lol so to answer your question straight you get a new modem you'll get faster internet....have fun
The cord that plugs into the DSL filter is a phone line and the other end plugs into your DSL modem. Also, every other jack that has a phone or fax or answering machine or caller id box has a DSL filter as well, in between the jack and the device.
yes, that should work.. the only problem may be the Default Gateway address that could have been manually configured.. I would look at the config of the router and make sure you have this information written down, but otherwise it should be just plug and play (pray).. :)
