You will not get your 56k modem to perform much better by tweaking. It's not worth the effort, especially on AOL. If you want to know about pricing for DSL/Cable you'd have to talk to ISPs (Internet Service Providers) in your area and see what they charge because they're not all the same. You should try to get DSL/Cable if you plan on playing planetside though. I have a feeling your AOL just won't cut it.

yup, he's right. With a 56k modem there's nothing you can really do.. In fact you can never even reach 56k. The speed at which you conenct is determined by the quality of phone line, how much traffic is on the phone line and by the equipment where you dial to.

and AOL for gaming? OMG I didn't think you could game with all that extra crap running....

As I said I cant get cable whatsoever untill the friggin cable company decides to cable down this road......and this road is a pretty big one too, I'm surprized it doesn't get cable for it links the mountain to downtown.....hmmm



And I do know that I would have to pay for all the equiptment, but thats a charge I, yes I am willing to pay for.

Great site to check up on dsl companies in your area. Also read reviews on what people think about it.

BurningSpear - Well, some cities actually charge a simple rate of 20$ a month for ADSL.. and that's THE monthly price. In my area, however, you're looking at 21.95$ with QWEST (fricken bastards) and another 21.95$ with a local ISP... so it's getting competitive.

Sorry but there really isn't any way to double your 56k speed. The closest thing you could do would be run 2 modems but that would only help download speed, not ping. You'd also need two phone lines, and for some ISPs you'd need two accounts. There is no "illegal" way to double your speed though.

Remember the old days of the 2400 baud... when online frontiersmen actually had their own little habit - like moving the mouse around - to actually get back one's latency. Those were the days.
