If youve got a ethernet modem
So one day I was messing around with my settings to optomize with my comp when i found this:
Go to Cont. Panel>System>Device Manage which might be under another tab.
Now open up ur network card and double click.Under advance go to Link Speed/Duplex Mode and click on 100 full.I see this boosting my internet greatly and although this will also boost 56k modems if u find ur com3 port im not sure about USB cable modems.
"Nice sig image Xodlike, a pity it's oversize. Shrink it down a bit and it'll be fine." Im getting complimented :)
