I've been to a friend's house, they have this simple ADSL wireless network set-up, i think it uses all netgear comonents, and on the PC i was on, it was networked using a small USB stick wireless dongle. I thought performance from that would be pretty shitty but the speed was great, the pages loaded within a second or so of clicking a link. I have a wired ADSL connection, on the same ADSL package, so it shoudl be the same, but i use different hardware, i use the standard USB ADSL modem that came with the connection, and the speed is annoying. Its fast when it is actually downloading files, but the access time is crap, it takes usually around 4-5 seconds to show a page. What i want to know is, what causes that? Is it my browser settings? The USB ADSL modem? Some other setting? My connection? What do i need to get to have pages load quick ?
