Anyone using dial up on their ibook? And is it possible to get different speeds on the same phone line but different connection spots in the house?
Reason I ask is that I'm on dial up and my emac is quite speedy staying at about 26000 (sometimes faster)bps. Yeah, I know -- not fast like DSL but it's all I can get out here. My ibook is hooked into a different phone connection box in the house (same phone line) but only stays at around 16200. right now it's at 21600 bps and it is much slower acting than my emac. I keep getting disconnected when I'm on my ibook too but hardly ever when on the desktop emac.
I keep thinking maybe a loose connection in my phone cord or something... I don't know.
