Modem is very slow please speedup this modem cdma2000 usb


Assuming this is a "phone modem"..

Simple, throw the modem in the trash and get a high speed connection (DSL, Cable, Wireless, or Satellite if you have too) .
In that order, although Cable usually has more bandwidth (download faster), but IMHO you tend to get better latency (best for Games) from DSL
Not trying to be sarcastic, I'm sure 99% of FixYa reads will agree this is the best solution.

But I know some places far from a major city/town, etc., a phone modem is the only choice.

Phone modems are a loaded issue.
How good your modem connection is is going to depend on your phone connection (is the wiring/lines old?), how good your ISP is (what kind of modems they use at the other end, and how they maintain them).
You should contact your ISP to find out.

One issue is determined where you live.
If you are in the USA then 56k is the standard, but you can only connect at slightly less (around 54k max).
You modem must be rated for that.
I.E. If your phone modem is rated for 28k then you will only be able to connect at 28k max.

Also you should go to your ISP website to get your local access numbers that fit your area code and prefix.
Then just to be on the safe side, call your phone operator (dial '0') and go over this list to make 100% sure these access numbers are local.
If you end up accidentally using any number that is not local (even one of those "zone" numbers) you can end up with a $500 phone bill.

Now armed with your list of local access numbers, experiment by setting your modem to use a different one each time you connect.
Try to connect a few times each to see how good it gets.
It is likely you will connect at a faster speed at one number then another.

I just put in a new 56k internal modem and its working but I can only connect at 33.1 kbps


It probably is not your modem at all. Usually its limited by the computer or ISP you are connecting to, If possible i would try changing the # that you are dialing into and see if you connect at a faster speed. One thing to check is to go to device manager and click on properties on the modem and make sure it is set to max 56K Hope this helps you.

Is it okay to plug 2 computers into the back of my dsl modem (2-wire) by means of 2 ethernet cables? There are plenty of places to plug into, so I tend to think it's okay, but I really have no idea and...


this is fine most modems can take up to 5 aslong as you have space in your ethernet slots on your modem its fine i would say buy another one if you want a faster connection and link them if you would like if not its fine but the more connected to the modem the slow the internet will be if all working at the same time

Can I setup a cable modem with a router


You can if the router is wireless and you have a wireless card in your computers. If not, then you will have to upgrade the router to a wireless and get wireless cards in the computers or run a cable to the 2nd floor

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.

New computer running slow


if you are using dial up, you shud not have a modem.. modem is just for DSL connection
if you have a modem probably you are using a DSL connection

DEFINITION:
dial up - connection using a phone line with internet connection; cannot use fone while on internet

DSL/modem- connection using a modem plugged in with computer and fone line; able to use fone even when on internet.

SYMPTOMS loadTOCNode(1, 'symptoms'); When you try to establish a dial-up connection after you upgrade your computer to Microsoft Windows XP from Microsoft Windows 98, from Microsoft Windows 98 Second Edition, or from Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition (Me), you may receive an error message that is similar to one of the following: Error 721: The remote computer is not responding. Error 678: The remote computer failed to respond. Error 691: Access was denied because the user name and/or password was invalid on the domain.
