  2. I tried you guys' advice. I was signing on at 49.2kbps but whenever I did a speed test, it was always 38kbps(4 kB/s) or so. I had 4 other things things in my house plugged into a phone jack. Two phones, and two DirecTV boxes. I unplugged all of them, signed off and signed back on, and the speed test was giving me 45kbps(6 kB/s) . Now all I wish for is for Verizon to get off their lazy bums and wire us up for DSL (if ever). Thanks.
  3. Darn, none of the Cablenut tweaks do anything for my connection. I still connect at 45k-50k as usual. Not bad for dial-up, but still disappointed that the tweaks didn't do jack squat.
  4. It might be possible that your Telco has switched to a pair-gain system which multiplexes two lines together. This can happen when more people move into a certain areas but there arent enought lines for everyone. Call up your local telephone company and ask them about it. If that's not the problem try one of the solutions above.
  5. I am using the Earthlink accelerator to speed up website loading. The websites load super fast because of the compression. However when I actually download a file, it seems the data rate is much slower when accelerator is on. Usually I download at about 5.5kB/s but with accelerator on it downloads at only like 2-3kB/s. I know turning it off fixes it, but it gets annoying after a while. Does anyone know whats up with this?
