Verizon DSL Connection Became Slow

I signed on Verizon DSL online service 10 days ago and the connection speed has been good untill two days ago (Oct. 19, 2004). Now I can only get about 20% speed I used to have, i.e. it takes me 20 min. to download a file while it only took 3-4 min. for the same size before Oct. 19, 2004.

Does anyone have the same or similar situation on Verizon DSL and how to fix it? Thanks ahead!

I'm on SBC and get this happens to me every week or two. A `ping` of my gateway confirms it -- packets are being held for a second or two. releasing and restoring the DHCP lease corrects it.

There are many coincidences and evil packets than can get equipment confused. A hard reset of modem & router (or PC) should help. Sometimes it's necessary to leave a modem off for 2-5 minutes to allow it to retrain.
