a properly tuned sat system is 800X better than dialup, adn your upload is ceratinly better, and do we need to talk about the fact it's always on... (er, whn it works..) anywho, it's loads better than dialup, if you have the cash. otherwise look for a wireless provider! Rual electric companies often offer tv&Net through a ground 2 ground dish.. (microwave)

it's probably just 768/128 but it'll kick dialup in the ass browsing and what not!

Hey guys

i have a "56K" connection

but

really it only connects at 24.0Kbps

any tips on speeding up my internet?

any tips would be appreciated

I guess I'll be the one to help you out here... ;) Why? because I also suffer with 56k and have invested alot of time tweaking to get the most I can out of it...not easy...LOL

Dude, am I reading this right? Are you going thru---> a PoP server?

For Dial-up, this is really a "bad" thing...

Also, do you have or can you enable MPPC stac compression? This helps tremendously when it comes to your dial-up speeds...

I know...I'm stuck using dial-up as well, but your speed is half that of mine... :-|

What program are you using for "tweaking" your internet settings....or are you... :roll:

If not, then post back and I'll see if I can help you get better speeds...

To start with download CableNut...this alone increased my speed by 15%...

http://www.cablenut.com/

Download this- CableNut Add On Package

and this- CableNut v4.08

Make sure to read the FAQ section to answer you questions like...how to I put the setting in?

Here's mine, and I'm 56k...(this is typical dial-up speeds using CableNut custom adjusted registry settings)

Yea, you have to reboot after registry changes for them to take effect..

This is starting to sound like it's your ISP... :? Do you have any choices on that for dialup?

I live in a small town with 14,000 and we have 3 dialup choices... :o

Cholla, the only thing about "all" that information you're giving is...What does it do?...

What speed improvements have you seen? Upload, download...gaming ping?  :?

Before I apply any tweaks, I want to know what it does, or is supposed to do...(especially when it come to the registry)  ;)

Hi MUff!N : The modem tweak really only allows more settings in the modem speed pulldown .It would help if your modem could use these faster speeds.Since the 115200 is the max before the tweak & this is recomended at several sites as a tweak this tweak allows you to set it even faster.

The other tweaks will allow you to see if the registry is optimized for your connection.You need to know what your max mtu & mss are.Cablenut will make a lot of the settings

What os do you have 24Kbps ?How far are you from the Telco?The tweaks in my posts are for 98,98se,ME,& maybe 95 .

Xp is a lot different from what I understand.I haven'tr had a XP os so I haven't tried to tweak it. Since there aren't many 56K 's here I will help if I can.
