I have 33.6 modem but I never get connected to my ISP faster than 28.8. I installed the same modem on a friend's computer and they use the same ISP and I can get connected to to the ISP at 33.6 on their computer so it must be related to how my computer. How do I fix???? Thanks, allie

Could possibly be a fault with your phone line....Check with your  telephone operator to see if there are any faults with your line.British telecom use a unit called DAX which seperates one phone line into two...If you have such a unit on your line you will only get connection speeds of 28.8 maximum.

Hi !

Does your ISP use 33.6 modems (or more) ?
If not you can't reach this speed !

Bye

Allie,
Your getting slower connection speeds because the telephone lines between you and your isp can only handle speeds of 28.8; it has nothing to do with your comp or your isp. Connection speeds, however, are misleading. If you really want to know how fast your going, than check out your download speeds, that is a much better indicater of how fast you are travelling on the net.
