If IE itself is slow (not the downloading of data), there's a small possibility that the DSL software is eating too much RAM. If you have 64MB or less this is especially likely. RAM is cheap now, and if you don't have much it would be a very good idea to upgrade anyways.

If the downloading of data is slow, CALL YOUR DSL PROVIDER! It's their JOB to make sure your happy with the quality of service you get.

Windows 98 with the networking drivers loaded took 48MB of ram just to bootup, you load other things, and as Mark said, that 64MB is eaten up.

We need more details.

Version of Windows?
Amount of Ram?
CPU speed?
Version of IE?

There are sooo many things that it could possibly be???
