Re: SOAD's internet prob ;)
You shouldn't have DSL at all, just so you know. I suspect you're at least 3 miles away from your CO. Look at your stats. You want both upstream and downstream noise margins to be 10db+ for any kind of stability, and your downstream is below that.
That's probably half your problem with Steam download speeds. That and just downloading from a slow/far away content server. Delete your clientregistry.blob and restart Steam. Should put you on a different server. Usually does for me.
