I'm pretty sure it wouldn't have. You can't get more out of something that is giving all it has. Max phone-line speed is 56.6.Kbps.

That's a very large problem these days. A majority of people are simply refusing to learn anything about computers because they feel it should be "that geek's job"; But then they start whining and complaining when the tab racks up to 4 and 5 hundred dollars for a faulty harddrive.

The sad fact is that alot of companies have malicious practices when they "repair" computers. Typically with laptops, they Blue Book (average price for item) the value, and call the problem a "faulty motherboard" so they can charge 50 dollars less than the base cost of the machine to repair a simple problem that normally deals with the interchangeable parts on the lappy.
