Ok, im not a newbie, yet im no expert, but when it comes to modems im not all that great, I have a Lucent Win. modem, unfortunately i have a 56k internet connection, which i hope is temporary [Shit] but eversince i came on to win2k thats been my only problem, my internet is very slow, i have to disconnect and reconnect like 3 times till i get a good speed on it, otherwise i can barely even get on google which doesnt take much to load, so yeah, what can i do, cuz i never used to have this problem, and its the same number, oh and by the way, I downloaded a driver off the internet thats compatible with modem because 2k wouldnt detect my modem in the first place.. errr that can be the problem but i need some help on that

Are you sure that the driver that u downloaded is the most updated driver that there is ?
And for the speed, that might just be a setting that you have Win 2K running, cause otherwise, Win 2K should not affect speed, unless u have some networking app. running, or a setting messed up in the config

It's most likely a driver issue. A WinModem is different than regular modems because it doesn't contain a chip to tell it what to do. It simply relies on Windows to tell it what to do. This is why it's pretty hard to get WinModem's to work in linux.

So what I would think is that in some way, the NT structure is just different, and effects the way that windows talks to the modem. However installing the correct driver should correct the problem all together.

grifter I had that problem too but I realized the shit windows tells u Is bullsh1t. IT has NOTHING to do with your actual speed.

My modem used to vary alot upon connections (as u said)....now I've made it show me I am connected @ 9,600Bps....sometimes it tells me i'm @ 115,2Kbps...

I use a 56k modem so if that's not bullshit then what is?

WEll I'm not bringing an answer to your question sorry, it was just to say don't rely on that supposed speed windows shows u on top of the 2 flashy PC in your system tray.

there isnt anythign else i can use out here in the boonies, ha [Shit] . When im 18 im moving to an area with cable modem. I love windows 2000, ive been running it for a long time hardly any problems at all. Everything of mine has been compatable... i had to download a few updates and reinstall a few hings but its all ok now. You should retry your windows2k unless your a linux [?] user which... i dunno anything about cuz i dont use it.
