I have a 33600 modem, and i rarely connect at this speed. It's usually 31200. I belive the phone lines in my area are analog, but other people i know get 33.6 connections. I belive that all of my settings are maxed out, but what is the MTU stuff i hear?? Is there any good freeware, or demo programs that let you adjust settings?? Also, should i update my drivers if that is possible?? My modem is two years old, and is a brand called "Thunder Link." If i can update my driver, what will this do and how can i do it.I'm satisfied with my connections already, but if there is a chance i can go faster, i'd like to know.
