I have been using Live Hotmail for some time now and starting about a week ago I have been unable to open or save .doc and .xls attachments. I see the file downlaoding screen, but the download doesn't complete.
are you *sure* you have those sizes right? I ask because DSL doesn't really go to 54mbps. You are probably reading the bandwidth you've connected to your wireless router, which is a different connection and really doesn't have anything to do with your DSL speed (which in most cases max's around 3mpbs, and is generally in the 384-1544kbps range ...).
