    I 'm having a problem with internet speed using windows xp pro
    (sp1 installed)

    in windows Me i always had 1.9-2.2 Mbit internet speed
    in windows XP i got 1.1-1.3 Mbit or less
    but i know it's only XP - not rogers because i tested many times
    on both systems, i did update my 3com drivers for my network adapter but still nothing changed :(
    is there anything i can do download prog for xp or any network options?

    are you running any firewall or virus software on that xp machine? sometimes they like to scan everything that comes in/out of your box, which would slow it down consideribly.
