Cool Tip: Open DNS
So I just reformatted my main machine after a harddrive failure, don't worry, data was recovered..
Anyway. After a fresh load, my internet speeds were HORRID. I have a 6Mbps connection and pages were loading like dial-up. However, once I finally loaded speedtest.net (after 8 refreshes) it showed I was getting full speed yet every other page took multiple refreshes to load and load correctly.
I've used this tweak in the past, and it fixed the issue. This works in vista or XP just gotta know where to look..
check it out.
