Hello, Im sorry to say the dial up modem (56k I assume) is limited to 56kpbs / second. The top speed is around 7KB/sec.

Only solution is to move to a faster connection, isdn you can get double that around 12KB/sec

Or a cheap cable / dsl connection 256Kbps to 1024Kbps the download / browseing speed on 1024 is fast enought for pretty much anything - the download speed is around 100KB/sec which is around 10 times faster than your modem. Thats what Im useing right now.

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.)

Wireless Router connection slow... need best settings for faster wifi.


WiFi is Wi Fi and the speed is the system---try getting the router close and check the speed of the service with a computer (free). If you are paying for service a call to your provider might be helpful.

I have dialup. i can't download or playback music


Check with your local ISP (Internet Subscription Provider) if they have a wireless modem/router so you can connect to the internet wirelessly.

They will be the one to configure your internet settings.

Internet speed go up to 2mb/sec but it go down to 50kb/sec and don't go back up isp:windstream


Sounds like you're being shaped to dialup speed (~50kb/s) when you have used all your download for the month. This is standard for DSL, at least here in Australia.

When the new billing month starts, your speed returns to normal.

DSL-2640U connect to internet but want to setup second dialup connection from pc


Sounds like you have high speed internet and also want a dialup connection as well. Maybe as a backup.
Anyway, your pc will need have a dialup modem installed in it.
If you already have one installed then you will also need a dialup ISP account. Some times an ISP will provide dialup in addition to broadband. Ask you ISP or call AOL.

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.

Connection speed


the usual maximum speed for a v92 dial up modem is around 48-52kbps, although sometimes the way windows calculates the speed can be different, showing higher speeds than is actually possible, hence the 115k that shows when connected. The only way you can get faster download speeds is to download the 'Onspeed' software which compresses pictures etc to enable twice the download speed.
