    There have been threads in the past about ZA 6.x causing a big drop in ADSL speeds so maybe this is a similar thing. I dont think any reason was found. Ver 4.5 was found not to casuse any slowdown & 5.5 only on some systems. It may be worth trying one of these. At dial-up speeds any improvement is worth it !
