Hi, i have been experiencing slow internet speeds on my new Vista machine. I ran speed tests on my two laptops (xp/vista) and here are the results:

The site said this was excellent

The site said this was "less good"

as you can see, there is a big difference in latency and connections per minute. how can i improve on these numbers?
When i first got the vista laptop, i thought it was lightening fast compared to my old xp, but now it has decreased significantly and i get a lot of page load errors.
I run AVG virus scans daily without a prob. Havent installed any weird software either.
