Hi, today I tryed to connect 6 times, but connection speed was about 33.6 Kbps. I think I changed something in setting but what?

Well for starters you'll never get 56 kps - its a theoretical maximum. What did you used to get?? What settings did you play with? What version of windows?

Actually It was 52 Kbps (little differense).

4000 bits difference is quite a bit. Are you sure BT aint slapped a DACS on your line?

No, Irish Eircom

Maybe they DACSed it

  WebGuy 20:07 29 Oct 2003

How can I bring it back?

if you have changed your connection settings, how about re-installing your isp software that should configure the connection back to the default
