As if migrating to a dial up since I moved down here isn't bad enough, today things are really strange.
My wife was connected today while I was at work. We lost power while connected. Power comes back after an hour or so. She boots and connects- at 14.4. I get home, no modem settings I can find have changed, no errors, nothing funny in the event log, no viruses (detectable by norty updated today). I tried re-installing the modem and creating a fresh connection, still between 12 and 14.4 connection speed. I just today was bragging at work that I connect between 48 and 52 consistantly.
USR internal hardware modem, I think a 2977.
Maybe someone hit a phone pole which knocked out the electric and phone, and connected me through LA or something?
I think broadband will be a must when I move. Got to have my DSL. It helps when I have people here running on the net at the same time. Plus uploading and downloading files for the websites would take forever without it.
