Just got a Compaq Pres/P2/450MHz/128MB/Win98 with a SupraExpress K56i/V90/PCI modem. This is a winmodem and I've already been advised to chuck it. The problem I have is that although throughput is fine, latency really sucks (about 2-4 times higher than other puters sitting next to it). It's so bad that for instance Internet gameplay is impossible. Question: Is there anything I can tweak to improve latency??? (I've tried decreasing IP packet size and killing off all background junk - didn't help)
