    Slow Internet, Proxy?

    So my internet is aweful. I moved in city limits and now there is no cable internet, so I'm paying cable internet prices for AWEFUL dsl. It's like it times out constantly, I'm always having to ip config release/renew when I'm browsing certain sites like neo, forums, etc. I can't refresh any pages without my internet dying as well.

    I put a transparent proxy on and it seemed to be much faster, even though testmyspeed said my connection was actually slower. Ip checking sites identified that I was running a proxy too. Would it be stupid to play neopets with a transparent proxy, or anyone know any other solutions before I throw my router out the window?

    you can play neopets with a transparent proxy just don't use that proxy for cheating.
    Also don't change proxies more than once every two weeks otherwise TNT might ban you for login from multiple ip's

    No, don't play neo with a transparent proxy. Maybe you should download foxyproxy and go to an elite proxy site and use one from there!

    Well elite proxies slow down your internet, but transparent ones can increase your speed but are easily detectable, that's what the conversation was about
