i have a ibm thinkpad 570 and am running xp pro. when i connect for the first time in the day the connection speed is at least 48 kbps ,after logging off and going back later to re connect the speed drops to sometimes as low as 9 kbps. is there an easy fix to this problem or what should i be trying.
I periodicaly get this problem. What I do to correct it is I go round the house and clean all the telephone plugs and sockets. This usualy resolves the problem. Normal speed I get is 49kbps. I sometimes see speeds of 50.1kbps.
