internet delay...please help

I have been getting frustrated by this problem for a long time but can't seem to solve it. I have noticed that every now and then there is a delay when opening internet explorer or outlook or synching my palm. It just occurs randomly and when I look at my connection, there is no data being lasts for about 20 seconds, then transmits. It occurs every five or ten "transmissions". It happened on my dial up and now it happens with DSL. I am using windows 98SE, no major tweaks or anything. Anybody have any idea as to what's going on? I'd appreciate any help. Thanks

i think it's because there's a bad connection, so they have to renegotiate the connection. i have the same problem on my POS DSL at home
