i get a 1.7Kb transfer on dwnloads, i used to get 3-5Kb, and on MSN Messenger i get a average ping of 10+secs, how can i rectify this prblem? or speed it up without using a modem booster, i just used a booster and it more slowed my net down than sped it up

Because you are on dial-up. :sayno:

Seriously, there are many factors that can cause a decrease in download speed, and sadly, 1Kb/s is usually a typical speed at times.

If you know any changes that the modem booster has done to your system, I would attempt to restore them to the default settings. You can also try a system restore.

Hmm. Nevermind. If you are using Windows 2000, then you don't have System Restore.

You should really consider getting DSL. The subscription fees are really cheap these days and you can get better than average download speeds.

A shell account is an account you have on another computer (usually Unix) where you have to login remotely using Telnet or SSH.
