Ubuntu hoary 5.04

Windows ME / Ubuntu hoary 5.04
Dial-up
Modem zoom 3049c serial external

After installing Ubuntu and configuring network setting the modem hooked up and able to connect to websites.
Ubuntu on the web is very very slow compared to Windows

Ran c/net bandwith test as comparison to windows with the following results.

Ubuntu Windows ME
6.4 kbps 40.6 KBPS

These number are in the ballpark as it took 30+- minutes to load c/net home page,bandwith page and get return on results with Ubuntu.

When modem connects to Ubuntu the 56K indicator light is off. In windows it is on.

Is this a ISP,modem or software problem? How do I correct this?

Thanks
Ray

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?
