I have a newly installed Win XP Home OS connected to a DSL router (256Kbps). I had hardware problems a couple of days ago that fried my hard drive. I bought a new hard drive, installed it and got everything back up and running, but now my downloads start fast, then slow to a stop after about 20 MBs.
Pages are loading slowly too. It seems like it is working in "spurts". A picture will start coming in fast, then stop, then start coming again.
