transfer rate/download speed

im having problems with my download speed/transfer rate. i have verizon DSL 768kbs, and i recentley tested my bandwith and got 720kbs. when i download videos off a website my transfer rate is 40kbs. i called verizon there is no problems on thier side, router works fine(strength is always good/excellent and speed is 54.0 or 24.0 Mps) i have a wireless network so i plugged the PC directly to router and got the same results. is there anyway for me to increase my transfer rate to match or come close to 768kbs? BTW the website im download videos is a paid adult web site, feel i should give full disclosure for the best advice Happy

Won't happen . . .

Because every and all web sites will download differently. Reason being is all use different approaches concerning hardware. Different backbone, different hops, different time of day, different load, and the list goes on. Sorry, it's just the way the Internet is built.

To pinpoint what could cause dsl slow down is not easy.

Aside from what Coryphaeus mentioned; here are some other things you might check. Make sure there is a filter for every devices that is connected to the phone line and that 5 devices is the maximum. And in my own particular case, I had a light dimmer switch that cause my dsl service to be cut off. Who is your service provider? Maybe they might have a Q&A website that may give you more hinds. Good luck.
