Re: Modem Speed Prob
The current copper wired telephone lines are limited only to about 53K. If you are connected only to 33.6 or 28.8K, check the following first:Is your modem compatible with the modem used at your ISP? Is your modem set up to run at full speed? What's the maximum speed your ISP allows? How far away are you from your ISP? Some modems need special initiation strings to get full speed. Some conditions are out of your control, such as weather and conditions of the telephone lines in your community. Problems may occur when you are dialing through a phone system such as one in a hotel. Modem answers incoming calls and then returns to the on-hook condition, disconnecting the caller: This occurs most often when connecting to a UNIX system. In most case, the host does not prefer to see any result or command echo codes. If this is the case, the codes can be disabled by adding E0 Q1 to the modem configuration string.
The modem dials and appears to complete the connection, but the communications software does not enter the correct mode. (The screen remains blank) This is normally caused by an I/O address or IRQ conflict. Verify that the COM port is not in use by any other serial device and if necessary use another COM port or I/O address settting. Refer to your computer manual on how to determine what serial ports are installed.
The modem dials and appears to complete the connection, but the communications software does not enter the correct mode. (The screen remains blank) There may be an I/O conflict (see the solution for the previous problem). The Result Codes may have been disabled by the software configuration set up. Check if Q1 is in the configuration or initialization string. If so, change it to Q0. Your software may require numeric result codes rather than verbal result codes. Use either V0 for numeric result codes or V1 for verbal result codes in your initiazation or configuration string. Some software require full extended result codes (i.e., CONNECT 33600 instead of CONNECT). This can be controlled by the Xn command. X0 sends a summarized code (CONNECT) and X4 sends a full extended code (CONNECT 33600) The modem does not auto answer The auto answer mode is determined by the S0 register. If S0 has been set to 0, the modem will not answer. Asign another value to S0 by entering the following command: S0=n, where n = the number of rings to occur before the call is answered (ATS0=2, the modem answers after two rings)
The modem always answers the phone. Set the S0 register to 0. ATS0=0.
The communications software displays, "No Dialtone." Make sure that your phone cable is working properly and that it is firmly seated to the phone socket at your phone jack and in the real panel of the modem.
A high pitched squeal is emitted from the external speakers This phenomenon is "feedback" and occurs when the microphone is pointed at the external speaker or is close enough to pick up the speaker output. This may be remedied by using a unidirectional microphone, making sure that it is pointed away and as far from the speaker as functionally possible. Another option is to use a headset with an attached microphone.

Unlike notebook computers, most desktops don't come with wireless networking built in. I can't find any mention on Dell's site that the Vostro 200 has wireless capability, so this computer doesn't have a wireless switch. To use your desktop computer on a wireless network, you'll need to install a wireless adapter. USB adapters are very easy to use since you just have to plug them in. They're not expensive and you can easily find them at retail stores and online.
Hi,you can check your original internet speed with upload and download exact speed at free of cost,for this facility i am using this http://www.ip-details.com/ site.visit here for more details ,it is a total free site.
Internet broadband connection is much more faster because it is directly connected via physical connection from the modem (typical setup for home use). But now a days wireless internet can now compete with DSL thru a 3G/HSPDA network. In our country we can have a maximum bandwidth of 2.5Mbps using 3G wireless network.
Yes you can speed up your connection using your phone as a modem but you need to consider some aspects.
your phone is a 3G capable phone
you have 3G network signal that an indicator "3G"can be seen next to the signal meter of your phone.
your network provider has 3G services.
What happen to you most likely is that your are connected using only a GPRS/EDGE. This is equivalent to a dial-up with maximum of 56kbps transfer rate. There is a great gap between the two if you compare it.
I already tested mine with maximum receive/downlink of 2,501 Kbps. I was really amazed.
Hope this things help you. If it does, please rate me.
its nothing to do with your router, there is a "fair usage policy" which has now been taken up by 98% of ISP's this means at certain times of the day the download speed is capped to cope with demand over the web, its nothing to worry about, just something we have to put up with
This model has three ways of connecting:
- wireless lan (from a wireless router or Wi-fi)
- wired ethernet (connects to dsl or cable modem via network cable)
-wired 56K modem (connects from phone jack to wall jack-slowest)
Compliancy : Wi-Fi® <---------- Network Support : 802.11b/g integrated Wireless Technology : Wireless LAN
topology : Ethernet LAN <-------- speed : 10/100 Base-TX topology : international V.90 modem (V.92 ready) <------ speed : 56 Kbps data and V.92 data fax
Regardless of how you connect, you must first have a Internet Service Provider.
If you don't already have one, look in your LOCAL phone book under "internet", call a few and find out what they have to offer. If your just surfing the net, reading e-mails, etc. a 1.2m connection will suffice.
If your gaming, hosting a web site , or performing any other bandwidth consuming activity you might consider a faster connection.
The price per month is also a factor.
i usually take a few notes on price, availability in my area, speeds offered, features offered and wether they give me a free modem with thier service.
dont do 56K dial-up, you will beat yourself silly while you wait for the webpages to load.
making sure you have the latest drivers for the dialup modem is about the most you can do. not sure if you've considered dsl or cable internet, but its cheaper than paying for dialup service and a phone line. (unless you don't have a cell phone and need the home phone line.)
