It depends on your connection speed such companies as AOL (from past experience)only give a 44 connection instead of a therotical 56 connection so you cant download as much...

If you know what you connection speed is divide it by 8 and that will giv you the max speed you can download at..

You will not alter you connection by much, and can degrade it by tinkering. What is you OS, the thing to watch for it the little TV's bottom right in system tray keep working if you are downloading, if they keep stopping you may be able to improve things

Also check that you have the very latest driver for your modem and, if you have any other problems, check them out at:

especially from the Speed button/tab on the left hand menu.

vojo - AOL dialup is 56, was with them for many years and normally got a quick connection of between 5.5 - 6. Though i understand its almost a legal requirement to slag aol

a download speed of 5.75 (avg of 5.5-6) is a connection speed of 46 ..which is close to my 44 comment..

and note i was not slagging them off they offer good value for money compared to BT as no silly 100hr limit etc...
