Use an USB pen-drive or even a floppy disk because the drivers can fit in 1 MB.

I have a dell optiplex gx240 that needs to be speeded up i think i need my registry cleaned up its not running as fast as i would like

You could bolt it to the front of an F16, try running CCCleaner or get a new processor and/or more RAM. All of these should speed it up,

Where can I find the maximum connection speed of my computer? I have a Dell desktop and I have Verizon Fios for my internet connection.

This might fall under the old adage, "Be careful what you wish for; you might just get it" LOL But here's your link and perhaps a learning experience if you choose to take the leap.

Dell Optiplex GX240 performance problem and fan noise

The fans on Dell power supplies are rather noisy and prone to failure. Find out if the noisy fan is inside the case or inside the power supply. If your computer has become slow you should scan for viruses and spyware. If the scan does not improve things it may be time for an upgrade.

The GX240 only supports up to 1 gigabyte of RAM, you should have the maximum installed. I would not spend more than $50 upgrading this computer, you can find better used ones in the $100-$200 range.
