I have 8Mbps Orange Broadband. Download speed varies between 3Mbps early morning down to to 6ooKbps late afternoon. I connect and disconnect when I need internet access via Thomson Speedtouch USB modem using "stdialup.exe" from a desktop icon. People seem surprised when I say I don't use an 'always on' connection.
Control Panel Network Connections says my connection Type is Dial-up. Is this compatible with broadband? Am I trying to use a dial-up connection on broadband? Is that possible?
