RE: Interesting Internet Connection Free

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Reynold,

I also have DSL and some days it really creeps alone.  Try dslreports.com
for a connection test.  They also have some suggestions on how to configure
windows machine for better speed.

I find that most of my slow problems are with the ISP and heavy traffic.
Also I have found bad connections in the phone line that resulted in low
band width.(That is a difficult trial and error testing problem)

Roger:

Thanks.  I use a DSL instead of a dialup.  I will turn off my animation as
you suggested.  Thank you for the tip.

Reynold,

First of all, I only use Windoze browsers when I absolutely have to.

Second, when I absolutely have to use either IE, NS, or Opera, loading is as

slow as molasses in January --- *if* I have a phone on the same line as I
have the modem (v90, 56K) connected to.  Unplug the phone, and loading is
relatively fast, about half the speed of Arachne whether or not the phone is

plugged in.

The suggestion of turning off images that Scott Maxwell made should speed it

up.  So will turning off animation.
