Dial-up is incredibly slow nowadays compared to all other internet connections. For example, any of the pages in these CNET forums would take an age to load completely, and an age means well over 10 minutes, if not more.
If these pages load reasonably quickly for you, (less than a minute), then you are on a DSL internet connection.
I would choose the DSL connection.
i am trying to download windows live mail .in one box it asks
dial-up 56k or dsl cable 256k/768.
i dont know what to put.i have a telephone line to my pc.
