Uncheck your modem compression and see if that helps. I have dial-up and it seems to help alittle. You can't get fast like dsl,etc. but dial-uppers don't have many options. Have you done a disk clean and defrag? Also scan your computer for spyware,virus,etc.
Good luck! Let me know if it helped.
hi i just wondering if someone can help me with connection speeds i us a us robotics external modem and have aol but the same thing happens with what ever modem or provider i use. its not a big problem its just annoying but when i dial out my modem will connect at these speeds 24000,24600,28800, and 31200
now heres the annoying part sometimes when it connects at 31200, which i think should be the best speed, it does't connect and it will take me 30 mins to an hour to get connected i have to cancel and reconnect over and over untill i get 24000, or 24600 which work great i have changed my modem settings and it doesn't do any thing.
just wondering if someone can help or is it just something i have to live with untill dsl or something is available where i live
