SO here's my setup.... main machine in quesiton is hardwire ethernet to router, router is ethernet to DSL modem, DSL modem hooked up to wall. All physical hookup is fine. Other wireless networked PCs have remained fast with their internet connection, but allofasudden the machine that's connected via ethernet cable to the router instead of wireless has slowed down dramattically on the internet. firefox and thunderbird are both drooped down to minimal transfer rates, and IE does the same. I've done an ad-aware check and ewido mal-ware check and nothing's fixed it. It's got to be something in the PC cuz the rest of my networked machines have stayed real fast! what could be wrong??
