Hi everyone...

Since moving to our new house earlier this year, we lost our DSL service, so I've been relying on a dial up. Our 56K modems usually connect at a pathetic 26,400. This is a real drag, especially coming home from our T1 line at work; and my kid keeps sending me looonnngg lists of tunes to find and bring home.

I first thought that it was my old Supra modem that was limiting my speed, but I just built a new one with a V.92 Supra and it connects at the same speed. Both machines are running WIN98.

Is this just a function of crappy phone lines, or are there any other fixes out there? I've found that the modem accelerators don't seem to do much. Any suggestions are most welcome....
