View Full Version : Slow connection to ISP

26-06-2004, 05:16 PM
My Win XP P4 has become very slow at connecting to my ISP (Paradise). It hangs and often times out at the "Verfiying User name and password message". I don't think it is an ISP problem, an older PC running Win 95 works fine on the same line. I have run Spybot, Adaware and NoAdware and they did find Spyware programs eBatesMoneymaker and Navexcel but they have now been removed. I am using Internet Explorer and Outlook Express. The modem message says its connected at 115Kbs but it is not transferring data at anything like that rate.

Any ideas?

Are you using an internal or external modem?

I have been experiencing similar problems with my external Diamond Voice modem. I have downloaded and installed the correct driver, but the problems still persist :(

Most annoying.

gerry......the "connected at 115Kbs" is an indication you haven't got the proper modem driver installed. have a look on the modem for a make and model number. download the correct driver from tha manafactures site.

what speed does the win95 pc connect at ?

I have downloaded and installed a later modem driver and it now says connected 52Kb and seems to have solved the problem but it was sometimes OK before so I will have to run it for a few days to be sure. Thanks for your help.

The Win95 connects at 33Kb but is an older modem.
