    I saw a utility on cnet called, Modem Max 2.5. It supposedly
    optimizes your modem speed by adjusting Windows registry
    settings.

    It is free for 14 days and sells for $24.95 after that.

    Has anyone used it or know anything about it?

    Seldom do these utilities do what they say they will but I thought I would check for any opinions.

    Thanks...

    The only significant thing that such software does is change the MTU size for TCP/IP, most of the other "settings" don't have a measurable effect. Since it's pretty easy to do this without the software, it's a total waste of money. Here's a reference Tweak Internet Speed, sent me the money instead. :D

    johnwill,

    Thanks for the site. Isn't it terrible how these computer folks
    try to take advantage of us "Po" uneducated computer users
    with their "magic" software that will fix all our problems...

    O' bye the way...

    The check is in the mail...

    Let me know when you get it and hold it for 3 days..

    All kidding aside, thanks for your info...
