I noticed that netflix movie rentals started to have live movies from there website in just 30 seconds. I became a member at my girlfriends house and started to watch a movie. It took about 45 seconds of loading and then played all the way through. She has bellsouth DSL....
I came home and tried it on my computer and it said it would take 2 hours and 13 minutes to load because my internet was to slow. I have bellsouth DSL also....
Ive always noticed that our internet wasnt as fast. My wireless card says that I am getting 54mbs. what could the problem be? what are some easy ways to fix it and speed it up?
Also, I think it is causeing a ping problem to on games. I constantly get kicked from servers even when I turn off all other computers connected to the same network.

she might be closer to the co or dslam and get a stronger modem signal. Dsl works on distance the farther you are from the dslam or co the lower your speed is. Like im like 100feet or so and i pay for 42.99 package i get 800KB a sec or more most times.
