  1. Hi cholla I think it is at the ISP level, and finally are starting to look at it, they have told me they don't know why I get better surfing speed on 64 and not 256, so maybe your right about the modem speed, hopefully they will sort it out soon, but what tommie told me to do surfing is better. Hi justinlay, not sure if I do have a static IP (I'm on private network) and the isat I didn't pick it they did, I don't think isat was suitable in my area. Yes it is expensive when I have not seen much differance in surfing speed from my old dial-up I used to have, the only thing good is th
  2. Hi Cholla, Thank you for your welcome, Tommie was a wonderful help last night and with what he suggested has helped and browsing is a bit faster at the moment. I finally got through to support (well I hope anyway) that when I'm on 64/64 my browsing speed is better than being on 256/64, well they can't work that one out lol neither can I. I am going to wait till a friend comes over to do your instructions as I was lost after reading for XP & 2K, I really mean I'm not tech minded, I tried doing things when I got my 1st computer well I crashed the drive to many times to count, so s
  3. Was also unsure on how it would go, the only differance is downloading something big is faster but surfing not so much faster PS also had to watch what I could afford
  4. Hi Tommie, I did think about it when I joined, but they have had a few problems so have waited, glad I did. 512/64 plan either $84.50 or $99.50 You have been a great help thank you, it's 7.50 pm here, have a good sleep, Don't forget to count the sheep lol See ya and thanks again :D
  5. Hi Tommie, Well they do and they don't regarding tests, The tests look good to me too, but surfing can be murder, sometimes upto a min plus to load a page, and these are pages I look at all the time, some pages I have gone into have taken nearly 5 mins to load I get fed up and just close it cause not going through that long if I want to look at the next page they have. The downloading of big files or games I want to play offline is quick but the surfing/browsing yuk. Thank you so much for your help, now I have to finish getting dinner otherwise I'm gonna cop it Thanks

  7. Hi Tommie, No I live in Australia Have the page up, I just can't work out how 64/64 can be faster re surfing/ browsing than 256/64. Will let you know how I go. Thanks again
  8. Hi Tommie, I am on 256/64 (500MB limit) and pay $49.95 I have been on it for 7 mths with another 11 mths to go on the contract. Thanks will have a look and see if it is simple for me lol The backing up well might have to do a system restore, haven't done that before either. Thanks :D
  9. Hi Tommie, Thank you for the welcome Yeah it's a bummer but that's all I can afford at the moment and not going higher when I'm not happy with the service lol Checked out the 2nd site you gave me and do all those things at least weekly if not more often. I am so used to saying dial-up I should have said 64/64 Surfing is faster on 64/64 than 256/64 Do the cache thing nearly everyday, will do the speed test on the larger file. I am not tech minded so have stayed away from things mentioned like tweaking, but will have a look at it thank you. I appreciate your help and will go and
  10. Hi all, Great site I am hoping someone can help me please. My download speed is about 30kbps, by all accounts my ISP say everythings great but my surfing is like dial-up speed in fact when I go onto dial-up surfing is better, pages load faster, my ISP also says it's to do with latency I have Vsat 256/64 I am not tech minded and I am a bit lost on trying to work out how to use Ping, Whois, Traceroute and DNS Tools When I put my port number in I get this Warning: fsockopen(): unable to connect to in /home/testmyn/public_html/tools/toolbox.php on line 265 Port
