[COLOR=purple]Hello. I have a new computer that was connecting to
AOL 9.0 topspeed at 50000. Now it is connecting at 264000 every time. Any ideas to help me? Browsing internet is so slow. :tazz:

But seriously, have you tried to connect to AOL using a different phone number? unless you live in a real small town, you will have at least two numbers that aren't long distance that you can use to connect.

using dialup is a pain....even with a 56K modem...(which is really limited to 53K, thanks to the FCC) on most phone lines you can only realistically hope to get 44K out of the trunk lines....if you are attempting to dialup during peak call time.....man..save yourself the headache and go broadband :tazz:
