I live in San Jose, Cali, and I have dsl with two computers connected. I have a Sony PCV-RS 420... with Win XP Pro, and is connected w/ built-in network adaptor. My problem is that I am only downloading files at 40kb/s, even when one computer is used. I know friends who have sbc dsl and they download like 150kb/s. I was wondering if there is something wrong w/ my connection or a technical problem... any help would be thankful. I think the problem is that it is where I live in that the connection is slow.
