Hi. The limiting factors on a dial up connection is usually the line quality and distance from the wire center (telephone company). If you have your modem set up properly and your ISP supports 56 K dialup, the only thing in between is your telephone company. You could call your telco and complain. They may or may not be willing to consider this a valid trouble. By the way, even under ideal circumstances, you will likely never achieve 56K on any dial up connection. In the rare instances when my cable modem is down, and I use dial up to check my ISP to find out why....The best I have ever gotten is approx 44 - 46k (not bad really....)
