I wanted to grab some more things off of akadashi's FTP server but I can't seem to connect above 21K and, quite frankly, I'm not patient enough to download MP3s at that pitiful of a rate. So I keep disconnecting and reconnecting hoping to get a better speed.

Heh. Got it up to 24K
That still sucks.

50 minutes to download ONE MP3?
Some of us just DESERVE more bandwidth, ya know? ::grin::

I'd say "ALL of us deserve more bandwidth than THAT" but if I did you'd come up with another one of those... PEOPLE... that you do come up with now and then. You know. The ones who should be connecting to the 'net off MY first modem, the 110 baud acoustic that dropped connection every fifteen or twenty minutes. Second prize can have my second modem... and the Vic-20 to go with it.

Not to be a complete dork and play tech rep, and not that you don't already know all of these things, but:

Use *70 to disable call-waiting if you have it
Try a different local access number if one is available
Make sure the modem is plugged directly into the wall jack, not through another device
Make sure there are no phones or devices plugged into the modem itself
Try removing cordless phones and answering machines from other phone jacks in the house
If one is nearby, try another phone jack
Try a different phone cord
Try shoving an ATZ or an AT&F up your modem's ass

If all else fails, take 295 to 95 North, then take the 395 exit to the 495 exit, then...
