I'm experiencing connection and speed problems with ISPs.
My aol connections were the most reliable and at speeds around 19 to 28.
I switched to Sprynet and connections were tough to establish ( every 15th try ) and speeds of 14 to 16, no higher than 16,800.
Finally, I've gone to a job related ISP and connections are extremely rare (1 in 100) at 14,400.
I found that the ISP was using Flex, so I turned off the X2 ( S32=32) and thereafter connected very fast, but at 14,400 always.
I've tried the extra ( , ) and setting connection speeds with little luck.
Equipment: telepath X2, P200, Win95
