    This question is too vague for me to give a proper response. What kind of security are you looking for...against viruses or against hackers? Also, comparing DSL and ethernet in this way is comparing apples to oranges. By ethernet do you mean cable internet?

If you are looking for better speed when browsing the web, DSL is the way to go. Even ATT's DSL lite is around 20 times faster than dialup plus it doesn't tie up your phone line.

if the speed was upgraded to ADSL 2 you need ADSL filters that match this. Check the model number of the ADSL filters and check the type of DSL is compatible with the Speed change.

DSL connection works on the same line provided by company who provides DSL. If dialup line is not provided by DSL company, you can drop dialup line and contact DSL company for DSL connection. If dialup line is provided by DSL company, migrate your internet plan from dialup to DSL by contacting DSL company.

Yes, you can still use the Linksys router with your ATT dsl modem. Could you provide me with the model or brand of your ATT dsl modem so I could provide you with the steps on how to setup your router?

No dial tone on my landline, but have dsl


I bit the bullet and canceled my landline! I did so without an internet back-up though. I HAD an appointment with comcast so I could stay online, but I canceled it. The reason being, my wifi is still working fine! I'm scared to shut my modem off, for fear I will lose this gift from the Cyber Gods!! I bought myself a "magic jack",it was even mispriced $19.99. I hooked it up, instant landline & fax too! ALL FREE!! Does anyone have a clue how/why I still get the internet? Has anyone ever shut there modem off? If so, did you keep your internet? I NEVER have good luck, I MEAN NEVER. So, after so many years of paying for all these over priced, some would even argue, unessary this day & age,monthly pain in the wallet things. Im done! At least I pray to the Cyber Gods that I am! Im knocking on wood as I type!

ATT 2wire 2701 HG-DSL lite on, but bad connection


If you have a 2wire HG2701 it experiences problems. You will need a new modem or a new router. I have one but it has the same problems. I went to FRYS Electronics and bought an speedstream modem. WORKS PERFECTLY

Windows 98 changing from dialup to high speed


You can do this, but I would not recommend it. Windows 98 is very susceptible to malware. You can get things just by going to the wrong website. These are called drive by downloads. It will get very slow from all of the malware running on the system very fast.

Look into downloading a Linux distribution like Ubuntu, or PCLinuxOS. You will be able to find a linux distro that will fit on your old computer and be very secure. Look at Distrowatch for many more options.

It is not possible to use Windows 98 on the Internet and remain secure. If you post the model/serial number of the compaq computer, or its stats then we could tell you if you can upgrade it to XP or Windows 2000, but this may not be practical on older equipment.

Dial up problems


In order to help you further I need the following questions answered:
What OS are you currently running?
Are you connected to a landline dialup or DSL?
Because if you are using dialup, that is your problem right there! Most of the people who are still using dial connections instead of DSL or Cable will have these problems. Technology is evolving so fast that even the phone companies seem to have trouble tell their customers that dialup is a problem because they are not supporting it anymore. They are selling it, but not supporting it because of DSL, FIOS, and cable.
You may want to upgrade, because even if the problem is resolved you will still encounter problems due to the lack of support!
