56K Modem

Recently i have been experiencing some ups and downs on my connection speed whilst online.
Sometimes its very slow and choppy and sometimes its fast while downloading and surfing through the different web pages.
How do i get the most out of my 56K internal Modem? Any suggestions?

The only thing I could suggest is get in touch with your telephone provider and ask them to turn the gain up. You would need to explain that you are on the internet and what you think the problem is but be aware that sadly with broadband the demise of dial up is inevitable. At busy times ( the world is busy at all times) dial will be slow and patchy

Have a read of the pages at click here before worrying too much about your modem's speeds.

There are many hints and tips that will prove valuable, plus links to other sites, including updated drivers.
