I use a 56k modem a Multitech exterior modem. When trying to connect to the Internet it seems to take ages but once connected it works OK. Is there anyway I can speed up the actual connection. Thanks in advance for any tips.

Might it be something with the dial up connection itself? Are you using ISP software to connect? Do you get any status messages where you can see which phase of the connection process it seems to be hanging at?

On reading various web sites on the subject it appears that my connection delay is not unusual for a dial up modem. I did have a modem which had a quick connection option which seemed to work but the actual modem was rubbish.
I just thought there may be something available to speed it up as it can take up to a minute to connect however I must be truthful and state that this doesn't happen every time.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
