Slow Broadband

Slow Broadband Can anyone give me any tips on slow BB speeds.The sites I visit are Stuff, NZ Herald , etc.Yet these pages just hang for no apparent reason for minutes on end.
Iam using a pretty old comp Dell 2400 Celeron)with a DSimth Router/MOdem. TradeMe is one of the few to load in a reasonable time . MY ISP is VOdafone.
Anywhere I can test my comp/modem/system or any suggestions on speeding this sytem up.TIA
