Sorry, but usually it is not possible to tweak a modem. Such things as provider limitations and line limitations stop that from being possible. However, you can always get a provider that uses compression... I actually got my 55Kbps slow ass modem to download a file at 10.9 kb/s (!!!) This was at one occation, with a nearby server but anyway, I was "thrilled"
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
