Broadband speed

PC Config - Win XP SP2, P4 3.2Ghz, 1 GB RAM

I am currently on 1 Mbps broadband and I recently noticed my connection was slower than usual. I ran a few tests and it shows that I am getting nowhere near the speed I am supposed to, most of the tests show I am getting around 100 Kbps. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can get my speed back to normal again?

I'm using ADSL through a Belkin modem/router.

ADSL. . .

is subject to noise on the phone line. Do you have the proper filters? If so, you need to contact your provider, explain the problem, and have them come out and do a noise test.

They will probably tell you that everything looks ok, but demand that they come out and test the line from the interface.
