how can linux load webpages faster?
I have a computer with a 56k dial up external fax modem made by
usrobotics. I am not sure about the model number because it was rubbed off of
the modem. The modem works fine under Windows xp, but in Linux, the
Internet speed is super slow. I talked to someone about this, and he said,
"Get a driver." I am not sure if usrobitcs supports Linux for all of
the modems, and I'm not sure if there is anything I can do because the
model number can't be read on the modem. I think most of the modems do
not need separate drivers, so they aren't being made. Also, I was not
sure what some of the settings should be for the modem. What should the
speed in numbers be set to? I could also try getting the win-modem to
work. I am not sure if that would be faster. It seemed impossible the last
time I tried. Are there any suggestions to get dial up working faster?
It's about 30 seconds to load some web pages.
Several possible reasons:
a) the serial port may be on a speed less
than 56K (check your /etc/serial.conf).
b) Windows was using compression on the ppp-connection;
if they aren't loaded.
if you the connetion speed to something liek 46 k it will improve, thats what i had to do when i used a serial modem to connect via dialup.
You can see the modem number by querying the modem from modem configuration.
Most LINUX recognized US robotics types. (usually configured at ttys0)
I use Courier V everything (costs me 280US$).
Courier modem is the greatest modem among analog clone.
You can use modem booster(software) or tweaking the MTU (wich I dont know HOWTO do it).
Speed connection may vary due to propagation (Phone noise,spatter,spike etc) so I use V everything coz it has the best ECC capabilities.
It is often just a matter of how good the init string is (hardware compression...).
You can find those command in your US robotics manual/command reference book.
It's for configuring how'd you like your modem to work/'behave'.
Anyway if you have 2 modem and 2 phone lines, you can have 'em bonded to achieve faster speed.
Contact your ISP for this service.
linux loads much much faster than windows on mine. i have tried us robotics and it sucks. i got an intel modem and have been extremely happy with it. i recommend getting an intel modem and using wvdial.
hope this helps
There are plenty of US Robotics types of modem, [V everything]Corporate modem is the best analog modem.(none can beat at this class of modem)
Instead of slow streams you can configure linux by Tweaking TCP/IP parameter.
You can use wvdial for earlier Kernell.
Have you disabled IPv6 in Firefox?
Type "about:config" in the address bar, and then do a search for "ipv6". Change the value to "true" to disable IPv6. That should speed up your browsing in firefox.
