I now have my Creative EXT modem connected to the XP computer. I
connected with no problems, am connected at 38.6.
I was able to read a few messages on this newsgroup. I ten opened
Seamonkey and went to Filehippo.com. I intended to check the download
speed of some random file. I chose Acdsee. I have waited 26 minuites
so far, just for the download page to load. Have not even gotten to the
actual download, and the data transfer has nearly come to a stop. I
cant even open messages on my newsreader at the same time.
Have you ever tried Linux?
You may want to see if you can connect better using Linux then dual
boot. Use Linux for all your Internet stuff, then boot to XP if you
need to run win-apps
