TRACERT and PATHPING show?
What about tesing your high-speed connection via several of the many 'speed
test' web sites out there to see what the variance is between them and what
your true average speed is?
Also - if you download an update individually (for example - good test would
be to grab the entire SP2 installation file - you can erase it when done) -
how long does it take?

Example: It took me 45 seconds to get the SP2 file on one computer with a
really nice connection... On another with a decent connection, it took
nearly 20 minutes...
