Question: I have a 56k modem on my laptop, and our ISP (Quantum Connections) supposedly provides 56k dial-up service, and that is what we pay for. However, my download speed MAXES OUT at 2.7kbs, and is normally around 1.2kbs. Now, I live out in the sticks, so is it possible that the phone lines are just so old that they are unable to handle a higher speed? Or is there something wrong with my computer settings. I'm running Windows 7 and have never really messed with network settings so far. Thanks!
