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.

Describing Cheap Dial Up Internet Connections


Today you can find a 56k modem. Transmit data at a speed of fifty-six Kbit / s V.90 or V.92 protocol. You must understand that this is the fastest available dial-up modem. 56k is the limit of maximum bandwidth of a standard telephone line. Be sure to connect to the Internet in areas with less noise power to prevent low-speed Internet connection. At this pace, you can play online games, download large files, make video conferences or movies from a video streaming site. Many of these applications are not compatible with Internet Dial-face. A broadband cable high-speed, satellite or DSL Internet service are better preferences.

You should expect all to take a little time to coordinate a phone connection, negotiate the protocol and, finally, allow the transmission of data. In some places, this process is slower. Note that the entire system consists of three entities - the ISP, Telephone Company, and the user. All have the power to terminate the Internet connection for some reason.

Yes of course. Before the introduction of the latest 3G wireless high-speed cable and DSL broadband by satellite, it was a bestseller. Today, it's always a good option for remote areas that lack the technology or broadband fiber-to-date. Satellite networks are suitable for rural people who want to get broadband connections faster and reliable. In urban and rural areas, attracts fewer users dial-up packages which do not require very fast network and you want the lowest cost monthly cost for ISPs.

This technology is very similar to digital subscriber line (DSL), because they use a phone line. However, DSL is more preferable because it is much faster and can use the website and answer a call on the same telephone line. Unfortunately, dial-up does not work the same way, the caller will often find your line is busy. In terms of broadband connections, ADSL first. Offers the latest technologies that offer greater speed and accuracy, such as ADSL, SDSL, VDSL and HDSL.

The modem is extremely slow-most downloads are far too slow


Dialup phone lines usually only transmit a minimum of 8 Baud. NetZero's high speed (5X) faster is done by caching pages you have already visited, not actially running internet but loading pages faster on your computer. Check your modem setting, 56k, 112K are normal speed setting to connect. Check your actual connection speed, 28.8 is probably all that you are getting on dialup.

I have just recieved a toshiba L20 - 197. it was a present of a friend so i do not have the user manual. i was told that it has wireless internet but i cant seem to connect. does it require a modem or any...


Wireless communication 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
Wired communication 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.

Is there any way to increase download speed on my dialup connection? Phil


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.)

Actually a router will not improve your speed, unless you are upgrading from one speed to a faster speed. A router is a device that controls the 'traffic' on your network. In the simplest explanation it 'routes' the uploads/downloads/etc across your network. It also enables you to have multiple computers access the internet through the same internet access such as dial-up modem, cable modem, satellite, DSL, etc.

If you are running a 56K modem for your internet connection, the only thing you can really do to improve your connection speed is to obtain a software program that accelerates the download.

There are different types of 56K modems, and some do have faster overall speeds but the speed is not a huge change.

If I am misunderstanding your question, please provide more details and I will be happy to respond with further details.

Smartlink 56k modem


Your speed of 46.6kbps in very good for a modem as the maximum speed of any dial up modem is 56kbps, which is never obtained. There is a programme that people use for speeding up the download speeds called 'On Speed' but a yearly fee is charged, all this does is compress the files that are being downloaded to speed them up.
