9x/Me is unfortunately very clumsy when setting up 128k access. Move to the Multilink
should set up an option to enable 128k even if you don’t plan to use it so its
there just in case you need it. Click on Add & verify the number is
correct. If you’ve specified to use an area code in the General
section, the number added should not have an area code prefix. If,
however, you did not specify the dialing properties with an area code/prefix,
you should add it into the new number here. The device should be the second (1)
channel, for simplicity. Click Ok, then Ok again.
this alone doesn’t automatically enable connections of 128k.You will still
only connect at 64k. To activate the second channel, you first need to connect. Double
click on the connected icon in the taskbar, & click on Details.
To activate the other channel & give you 128k you need to click Resume.
The second channel can be disconnected at any time by following the previous
steps, but clicking on the Suspend button (it will change from Suspend to
Resume & back again as you click on it).
is nearly always noticeably faster than 64k, & for most of you I would
recommend connecting at 128k all the time. However, this also costs double the
amount that a 64k connection does, & as such some may want to be a bit more
conservative with this option.
9x/Me unfortunately does not support bandwidth on demand, like Windows
