Over the last three days, my connection has been operating at speeds much slower than usual. For instance, when I run a speed test over at Speakeasy, I get results like:

Download Speed: 1722 kbps (215.3KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 553 kbps (69.1 KB/sec transfer rate)

Typically, my download speed is somewhere between 7000 kbps and 9000 kbps. I have service through Cox HSI, using a Motorola SB 5120 modem. I'm running WinXP with SP2, using the ZoneAlarm firewall.

I've had numerous chats with the help at Cox, but they've been unable to determine any problem on their end. They show me having a good connection, but clearly something is causing it to be much slower than usual.

I've ran the usual battery of scans -- AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5; AVG AntiVirus; Spybot S&D; HiJackThis; Ad-Aware -- and have found nothing unusual on my system.

However, when I go to ipconfig and try /flushdns, it acts as if it is doing so, but the results for an ipconfig /displaydns never change. Should they? And the results of the ipconfig /displaydns look suspicious to me:

I do not recognize any of those sites, and many of them seem suspect based on their name alone. Is there something I can do here to clear that up? I'm at a loss here, as I've exhausted my fairly basic knowledge of these matters.

Thank you.
