    Because of the british telephone system, your modem can never connect at more than 36.6kbps, so however much you mess around with the modem, it's just not possible! 56.6 Kbps is the maximum possible connection speed... :rolleyes:

    Annoying I know :mad:
    33.6 kbps, not 36.6.

    It will be your ISP. We cant get broadband in my village so we used to have freeserve dial-up. It would never connect at more than 38k, and most of the time was at 33.3 and 36.6. We changed to BT and it connects at 52k every time, on the same modem and same line.

    Im on 10Mb at uni though. Can download a film in 15 minutes if I get a good connection/host
