I have an Conextant D850 56K v.9x DFVc modem and I am browsing the internet at a blazing...26.4Kbps!
I have heard of the distance to the switch board, phone cord quality and modem initialization string all affect how fast I may connect at.
Is there something I can do to get the full 56Kbps my parents are paying for?
Also, don't tell me to get High speed, as the High-speed cable ends 2 Km away from my house! (Aparently it is not worth the money to bring the cable up any further)
and I am surrounded by 200ft tall pine trees so "Rocket sticks" don't work here, and I don't have $100 a month for satilite High-speed...
Can anyone help with this old way to connect to the internet?
