My old modem was setup on xp with a manual internet connection for high speed dsl I created using the "create a new connection" wizard in the network connections section of the control panel. Meaning I had to manually enter an email address, password, and all that info my isp had me to use with my old high speed dsl modem.
So well since my old modem stopped working, I decided to just it with my new modem. I didn't delete the network connection for my old modem, and well to my surprise my new modem [which is a different brand/model] works!
My question is should I have deleted the old network connection I used with my old modem or does it not matter?
Because one thing I find odd is that this new modem seems to be A LOT FASTER than the old one. I checked my stats on speedtest.net and they're off the charts! I used to get 3mbps on speedtest.net, and now I get 4mbps. Not only that but my network connection icon in my systray says 100.0mbps speed instead of 10.0mbps speed, which is what it used to say with my old modem. [I didn't ever really understand why it said 10.0mbps speed when I never got that speed anyways, and now 100.0mbps? What gives?]
