How can I speed up my DSL?

It is just not as fast as I thought it would be.


Answer by  AvrilBey (474)

DSL, in general, is not very fast. The first thing you should do is find a speedtest online and see if the speed you receive reflects the speed you are paying for with your service. If so, things you can do to make it easier are switch to an external DNS and tweak the network settings in your OS.

You'll have to determine the weakest link in your network and change that. For example: If you are using wireless that could be slowing the network down. It also might be that your firewall/antivirus program slows the computer and connection or that your ISP limits certain connections down (P2P etc. ).

The speed of your connection has to do with your upload to download ratio. Most of the time with DSL it requires paying more money, unfortunately.

You can upgrade your RAM, install a larger hard drive, get tech support to perform maintenance on your computer and check your line, and make sure your firewall is working.

Make sure that you have no programs (such as peer to peer networking) hogging your connection. Go to speedtest. net and ensure that your connection reaches the bandwidth that is average for your ISP. If it doesn't, contact your ISP. If it does, than there is nothing you can do - you get what you pay for.
