Almost everyone on the planet knows more about computers than do I. All I know is that of four or five DSL speeds offered by my provider (with highest being best), I have number two for which I pay $29 a month. My 6 year old Dell computer was recently upgraded to it's max RAM of 1 Gig.
The above being the case and of course not knowing your situation, I down loaded all the pictures from the new website in less than a half minute.
Maybe it might pay you to check with your telephone company and insure you're getting the service that you're paying for. I got snookered by a previous provider so it does happen.
Also, you might try emptying your temporary internet files. I learned the hard way that if one doesn't do that, it will get so bad that eventually you won't be able to bring up anything.
