I was on ntl until i changed to adsl, My connection was only very slow after I changed my pc with one that had a v.92 modem. Ntl told me they do not support v.92. I changed back to v.90 and all was well.

hi, thanx for responding i was beginning to give up. I have a modem that supports both v.90 and v.92 so hense still havent a clue whats happening!

Have you got normal dial-up like myself or broadband? thanxx

on dial up most online games will be very slow and jerky if they play at all.

dont expect to get 56kbs from your modem 40ish is more like the norm.

You need to check if you have a manual for the modem, on how if at all you can just run the modem at V90, By changing a setting, only you will know as we do not know what modem you have
