View Full Version : Slow download

09-09-2002, 08:48 PM
I am helping a person who has problems downloading anything on the net. They are connected to clearnet using a 56k modem and it takes up to a minute to make a connection, not always successful. Clearnet page sometimes arrives but usually the message is received that the page is not available. I have tried other modems and other computers at their site with the same results.
Some time ago I encountered a similar problem and it was solved by a control string in the modem settings.
However I can not remember what it was. Can anyone help with a control string for a Lucent winmodem.

In the extra setting type in s38=0-v90=0
This will give a more stable 33k connection.
