I have found that the us robotics external modem which hooks up to a serial
port (56K, V.92) are simple to use and are hardware modems which are redialy
available. A software modem uses resources from your CPU\Ram and are
built-in modems, not all built-in modems are software modems. The key is
also to make sure you do not load your modem up as a standard modem, you
need to update the drivers with the software that came with your modem, also
www.dslreports.com <http://www.dslreports.com>  has some tweaks that you can
apply that will add some registry settings to get maximum communication,
other sites I am sure have similiar fixes. Dave

Hi Barbara,
Sounds like you and I live in the same neighborhood.  But of course we could
get a satellite connection if we could afford their prices.
One thing I've learned though is that dial up speed isn't affected as much
by the speed of the computer as it is affected by the speed and quality of
the modem itself.  Now, someone else here would have the technical knowledge
to elaborate and tell us "why" this is so.  A friend of mine, who is amazing
with computers, told me something about hardware modems being faster than
software modems but I understand hardware modems are difficult to find these

Dan  I'm poor folk too. Just dial up available where I live. I'm sorry I
goofed up and sent that first big one. I am new at scanning and just trying
to learn what exactly to do...Now I am excited and going to have to hit my
photo album and annoy my relatives and sent them to them.  Someday maybe
they will have dsl available in my area, but then again we don't get cable
tv either. But we finally got with the program and got a satelight dish. And
I heard I could get internet thru that somehow, but really the dialup feels
fast to me since I went from my old computer that was 200 mhz to this compaq
presario..and I feel like a Queen. Okay Queen of the computer, but no master
at it.

Hi Barbara, I allways try to keep my pics under 200 kb's That is plenty
large enough and they load pretty quick for us poor folks that are stuck
with dialup access. It took your 455 kb scan about 3 minutes to download in
my mail if that gives you any idea. My Kingdom for DSL :-)
