    I have a laptop compaq presario 1200xl125 533mhz 128mb ram . Whenever i connect it shows that the speed is 16.8 kbps. That's way too slow since my modem is a Lucent 56k v.90 PCI df modem. I'm using winxp but it happens the same thing with win98 or winme. I also tried uninstalling from device manager. What do i do?

    have you tried from different locations? Your connection speed is also affected by telco line quality; if you have a lousy line, try a different outlet in the house/office or a completely different location.

    Don't assume it is automatically the hardware or your PC/laptop...I worked with two PC's in the same building, but wiring caused one to be pathetically slow....
