Are there any dial-up tweaks that could improve download/upload speeds? What I have in mind is perhaps adjustments in the Control Panel under "Modem" or "Network". I'm not looking for miracles. I'm looking for the best possible settings while using a dial-up modem. In the past I've gone to websites that claimed if I downloaded one of their files, it would automatically make adjustments to my registry. What a disaster! Any tips you can provide will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Yes there are settings to tweat for better performance. Although they will not affect your download speeds they will increase your connection uptime. That is to say you won't get cutoff as much.

I used to be on dial up and had a great connection with those tweaks. Cant really point you to any but try www.thescreensavers.com search for dial up tweaks or something.

If you're using Windows 95, 98, 98SE, or ME, click the link below and read my article on 56K dial-up tweaks. The list is quite extensive, so have fun.

The best dialup tweak is to disconnect every other piece of equipment that uses the phone line in your dwelling whether the modem is on a second line or not.

Soldering the actually phone wires directly to your modem's circuit board helps a little too.

Not practical, but it does help.

Dial up is dial up and the tweaks you can get are not going to help you be any faster on the web.
