You can try changing the MAXMTU setting in Win95.

Open the registry using regedit.
In the registry do a search on MAXMTU
change the value from the default 1500 to like 570.

See if it helps.

Slow internet speed most of the time you cant help. You can't use another proxy because as far as i know there are no public proxy's. If you want to get faster access to the internet the only way is to Purchase access from a fast Internet Service Provider. Student connections are usually slow due to the high user load on the student networks. But I suggest you go to a private internet service provider and purchase a faster connection.

there are a few public proxies around.. but i can't remember them now.. but they were REALLY slow because a lot of hackers and stuff were using them. take above advice and get your own ISP.

rule is : if you don't want to pay, you ain't gonna get.

How slow is slow? To increase speed if you connect at 50k, you need multiple lines, and an ISP supporting multilink.

Try using proxy04.netvision.net.il:80 as your proxy (however note thet this is leeching on a commercial vendor's proxy and it might not last much).

Also note that the wwwproxy services has been upgraded somewhat, however I'm still not fimiliar with the new speed since the proxy I gave you is MUCH faster.

Enjoy, etc'...
