  1. my modems been running well until i played with the settings...now it start downloading at about 6k the slowly decreases to around 3k.
    When i play an online game it runs fine then after a minute or 2 i get a sudden hit of lag and then its fine then i get lagg then its fine?
    Ive also followed your guide on the site with no avail either.
    Does anyone know how i could solve this prob?
    ps im running xp and dont know the manufacturer sorry the device manager just shows it as a generic 56k hcf data fax modem.

    On dslreports website you can run an online test of your internet connection. They then tell you what you could change, why and how. They have an extensive FAQ as well.
    Give it a go.
