im connected at 26.4Kbps right now

real connection is probaly 23Kbps

dont know MTU or RWIN

Ouch.  Something is definitely wrong.  Are you using a surge supressor between your modem and the telephone jack?  I've found that they can degrade performance.  You should also try to rule out whether it might be the telephone wiring in your house.  Open the network interface box and see if there's a test jack.  If so, try plugging your modem in there.  You may need to use a bit of an extension in order to reach it.  That way you can bypass the house's wiring.  BTW, that's how I am connected right now.  There's so much static and noise on this house's internal wiring that it's unusable for dialup networking.  The wiring is almost too bad to even use for voice communications.

24Kbps : What is a bonded dial up test? I would like to know.On the wiring pretty simple replace it.Try CAT 3 24g to 18g

telephone cable you might go CAT 5 if you have EMI problems.If you don't know what I'm saying do some web surfing to find out there is plenty of info on this on the web.  Cholla

bonded dial up is like two 64k isdn channels

they combine them together

but the difference is

what "bonded dial up" to me is :

2 Modems

+

2 Phone Lines = Doubled dial up speed...

my speeds kinda suck when doubled up

Most often bonded dial up speeds: 48.0k and 50.4k

Least often bonded dial up speeds: 52.8k

my lines suck so bad

if im lucky i can get

26.4k on 1 line and 26.4k on another line to make it 52.8k

but most of the time i get 24.0k and 26.4kbps  which is only 50.4k.... it isnt that fast if u think about it...

compared to good phone lines

anyways

are there tests i can have my phone company do to check and see if the wires are bad?

i think we have cat 5 in the house but.. im not sure

good idea...

isdn fees:

220$ to turn on the isdn line

12.50$ a month for line activity and 30$ ISP charge...

Bonded dial up fees:

2 phone line amonth 25$ amonth

already have modems that will do bonded dial up( agere modem and conexant modem)

usual speeds on these modems doing bonded is:

48k

50.4k

rare speeds: 52.8k

i dont know...isdn sounds good but little expensive...

128k for 40-45$ a month is a lil spendy

EDIT: bonded dial up speed test right now(48.0k)
