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.
It is often just a matter of how good the init string is (hardware compression...).
Init string is an extra AT command set for your modem.
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
