my dial up speed is always 31.2 kbps. i have connected the same account in my freinds computer . he is also using the same configuration and os as that of mine. so he is getting 46.9 and odd kbps . so why my pc is having constant rate. will the modem speed setting may effect htis. i have checked it also all the data transfer rates are high.can any body solve this problem.
Firstly, the connection rate displayed in the system tray is usually the initial rate at which the dial up is made, and often does not show the variations that follow
If your connection seems to be limited to around 32kbps then your modem may have old software that could be updated to carry up to 56kbps, or your telephone line may have a limitation set by BT. In that case ask them if they can increase the gain. (You may then get a slight echo on voice calls)
