send/receive rate problems

by radrock123 / July 1, 2004 9:47 AM PDT


As of recently, when I dial up, my sent-receive rate is way out of regular proportion. I'm receiving a lot of data, yet I'm sending little amounts of data. This is interfering with once possible things, such as playing online games.

Is there a clear solution to this?

In this case, are there such modems that support faster upload?

If you were going person to person and not to some ISP, a pair of just 33.6K modems are as good as it gets. Or you try looking at the AT commands to limit the download speed to 28.8 and then that leaves more bandwidth to the uplink.

If you are connecting to an ISP then the next issue is that the ISP modem is what it is and you can't change that.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
