Question FNG seeks DSL guidance with Fed 7

So I connected the cat 5 network cable from my dad's actiontec DSL router (QWEST) and I can get online but it's slow as hell
My dad's computor runs windows xp
any advice would be great

It's QWEST dsl service, and the download speed on the older computor running windows is good. My laptop (a faster computor) running F7 is having much slower download speeds. Also I really apreciate the Einstien quote. It reminds me of another...

Ok, just so you know, QWEST offers five different dsl services in my area. They vary by down/up speed.

Is this downloading via a web browser or a download client, IE bittorrent. I you are using a download client then you should take a look at your firewall settings. System/Administration/Firewall and Selinux

If not, you might want to input your dns manually. System/Administration/Network, Edit. Uncheck "Automatically obtain DNS information from provider" click ok and close the network Configuration box. Then reopen it and input your DNS manually in the DNS tab.
