Tell us a bit more about your Internet Service Provider (ISP)...

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

I'm in Iraq. Ther server is called "radius Cafe" its an American service brought from the states that Soldiers Pay for on a monthly basis. You log on and you are brought to a log on page where you type in a username and password. At that point you are granted internet access.

its suppose to run at

Rx Datarate: 128 Kbits per sec
Tx Datarate: 128 Kbits per sec

But does not even come close to that rate. I'm actually on a PC right now (which is a LARGE portion of my frustration right now) My macbook is on the and should be here in about 5 day (MY FIRST ONE IM SOOOO STOKED!) I'm just trying to plan ahead and how i can get the absolute most out of every little kbit i can muster.

That's going to be a very difficult question to answer, since we know so little of the service. I would imagine the backbone is very limited, given the infrastructure there.

I'm sorry I couldn't be of more help, but I do want to take the opportunity to say thanks for your service.
