So basically, my internet download speed is around 5.1 mbps (it's mbps, right?).  However, recently the game i play has been running slow. The game is an old one titled Diablo 2 Lord of Destruction, so there isn't a lot of power required to run it online.  What are some things i can do to find out what is wrong with my connection, causing for my game to run slow?  Running google is super slow too.

Have you made any recent changes in hardware or software? Have you been playing fine before and then suddenly out of the blue it's now running slow, or is this a recent attempt at going back to the old game?
