Question about Computers & Internet
Having issues with my internet speed after talking with isp they say my modem is the problem with my speed can i download some sort of update for it to fix the problem or do i have to go buy another one the modem i have is only just on 12 months old it is a soniq cwr150ns
Go to your modem web page i.e. "192.168.1.1" with username : admin and password: admin(default) and Check the version of firmware installed and then check if update is available on internet. If yes you can download the update else switch to new modem.
Before switching to new modem ask you ISP to provide configaration so that you can have max speed with your modem.

An option that you can take is to possibly update the firmware of your modem. If that does not work contact your internet provider for a replacement depending on the arrangement you have. (Whether or not the modem is in rental or purchase plan) if its under warranty have it replaced.

OK. First of all you do not need a special or seperate driver for the Ethernet port. Its factory loaded with your OS.
All you need to do is plug the Ethernet cable into the LAN port on your HP Desktop and then into the LAN port (not the WAN port) of your cable modem.
The second thing is if its only a cable modem, then I suggest you proceed with caution as there is NO built-in firewall on a cable modem. Yes you will get on the net, but you are likely to be attacked with virus the moment you connect. I suggest you check very carefully whether the cable modem (if that's what it is) does/does not have a firewall as you would be very unwise connecting up like that.
Next, forget USB connection to the router/cable modem. That technolgy we've moved on from.. Your Vista shodul be 'plug n play' adn should configure the router for you. obviously that bit isn't so slick on yours.
Let me know how you get on..

you have a v.92 modem even if it lists as v 90 just run a windows update,, look for hardware updates, , if none comes up for the modem you should be good .
the last update was to 8.30 for v92. .. v90 etc. . it wont make that much of a difference in speed. .. however
A phone line filter WILL make an amazing difference, having worked for a dial up isp before , trust me , they help alot. .. its worth 12-22 dollars from any radio shack or maybe even walmart.. . i've seen them in home depot as well but don't spend more than 25 dollars. .
"phone line filter" look for it on radio shacks website
the picture is accurate.. not sure of the description, that thing is not for two lines.. its a a single male end --- to --- female end filter no bigger than a permanent marker. .
good luck. . oh.. it should increase performance from say 34k to 48/56k orn your modem. .
good luck. . its the next best thing to having new lines put in... to your house.
