I have been using my Hayes Accura External modem for at least a year on 2000 and getting great connection speeds but since using XP I getting some connection speeds as low as 2.4kb..! Now that is slow..! I have done all the normal things, ports, MTU, and even went to Microsoft..!

Please help me...! Its driving me mental..!

I'm having the same problems in windows2000 on a clients computer.

It was fine however before i did the update of Bios.

Its a win or lose situation

If i want ACPI compliance... i update Bios.
If i want Modem complience... i downgrade Bios
Upgrade=acpi but no modem speed
Downgrade=No acpi but modem speed.

I've just downgraded and reinstalling the lot.

I dunno if this could be the same problem as yours.
The motherboard its having a prob on is a Gigabyte GA-5AX ALI Chipset.

Got a good connection at last ..! Used INternet Tweak to do some mods in the registry and after reboot got a good connection but I bet next time I log on I get a slow one..! Have now added/downloaded every XP update from the MS Corporate Update site..!

Will keep trying to beat this prob..!

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
