Modem speed suddenly less
I have dialup, and I have previously been getting 32 kbs on this computer. A week or two ago, the speed suddenly dropped to 24 kbs. I checked the settings and ran an optimizer, but it didn't fix anything. This is really slow, considering it was never fast to start with. Another computer i have, an older one with an older modem that never used to be faster than this one is getting 40 kbs. It's plugged into the same wall jack (I use a power strip as a splitter). I recently reformatted the hd on that one, so maybe that cleared out crap and made it run faster. The computer in question is relatively new though, so it shouldn't have many problems. I run XP, with a Soft V92 Data/Fax modem manufactured by CXT. Any advice?
