slow downloading from net

Specs: Windows Xp Home, P4/256MB
In one of my office PCs which is an assembled one, the complaint is that the download speed from net is slow. We have got VPN connectivity through local intranet. How can the system be made faster?

XP on a P4 running with 256Mb RAM...

First thing I would do is add, at least, an additional 256Mb RAM.

WinXP uses about 240Mb RAM just to start up to the desktop so beyond that you are using the pagefile to handle your tasks which is much slower than RAM.

Ah, but are we discussing the PC in the OP's profile, or "one of (his) office PCs" as mentioned in his post?

Regardless, 256MB isn't enough for any machine.
