Modem Speed

by ChrisMS In reply to Modem

What are you currently running. To increase speed, buy a faster one.
The software that says it will boost youor connection speed doesn't.
There are too many factors involved to say it is only the modem slowing you down.
Things like;
CPU speed
Available RAM
Line connection
Status of server
And so on...

Home Run

by csmith In reply to Modem Speed

Assuming that there is no other choke point in the PC, the only other thing to try is a Home Run.
A home run, is a line run directly from the outside phone box, to the PCs MODEM.
Old wiring, (over ten years old) and marginal phones can "Load" the line and cause slowdowns.
Past surges in the line can also damage a MODEM to where it slows down , but does not fail.
Regards, Chris
