Maybe this will help

In reply to: sorry

Scroll down to:slow internet connections by the McKinley family. I posted something that might help you. Post by techreader. Let us know if your connection is any faster. Also scan for adaware,virues,etc. this may also help seeing how you too have dial-up.

But what you really want is your ISP to supply possible AT commands for your (un-named) modem to see if that will help. Sometimes it will, sometimes you find a house with 15 telephones on the line and a bewildered dialup user.
