    Sometimes it ahs nothing to do with your modem or computer. Phone lines can be old and slow things down. How long is you phone line going to your puter from the wall? Max should be 6 feet.

    Has it worked faster or was it always this slow?
    Distance from the telephone central office can affect the speed also.

    Del, It was much much quicker previously & my wife has noticed the slow operation too.
    We have had all our phone lines checked & BT (Telephone wire supplier) has triple checked & declared us OK.
    Knowing that I am inexperienced I suspect that its something that
    I have done to corrupt the system.
    Any thoughts would be very much appreciated please?

    At this point I'll leave it to the experts, dial up is not my strong suit.
    Someone should come along soon with some ideas.

    Del, Thank you very much for your reply, it is much appreciated.
    There are so many of us with questions & I suspect so few with answers, any helpful reply gives me considerable satisfaction & makes me realise that I am not being ignored.
    Thank you.

    I have now identified most of my running processes which appear to be benign.

    My throughput speed yesterday was 14KBS(results Numinion.com)
    My average internet speed for the past few is dropping to23kbs.
    Where do I go now please??

    I have a 56K V90 Supra Express i PRO.

    My basic query remains.

    Can any startup specialist examine my startup list above please?
