First test it hear, I am connected at 48000. This is what I am getting at the moment download speed.

on the top file 5630cps or 46,000bps

bottom file is 5250cps or 42,000bps

I can give you some things to try but a lot depends on your line quality

watch the two little TV's bottom right in the system tray to see if they are active or stopped

I do not know which one you use but I am on BT-NTL and that's still working

Internet speeds have been slow since Christmas although have recovered somewhat in last couple of days

Perhaps when everybody gets back to work things will resume their normal pace

Try this click here

It certainly helped speed up my surfing experience and I still use it even though I'm now on BB cos I got used to all the really great features like "pre-fetch" and "site mapper".

Your connection speed probably won't change all that much but it can help speed up downloads dramatically.

Works fine with XP

You can try these first, Go into Control Panel and double click on Networking, then double click TCP/IP click OK to the box that pops up, then click WINS Configuration click the box Disable WINS Resolution, Click OK, next click Dial-Up Adapter and make sure that IP Packet Size is set to Automatic then click ok and Exit Networking. Then you can try this also while in Control Panel Double click on System\Device Manager\Ports expand if you know the port your modem is on, Double Click the port\Port Settings and set to 38400 click ok to all restart and try you modem at the above site, there is another thing you can try but see if that does anything
