It is more likely due to phone line coniditions than drivers. Is your computer a name brand? If so, what is the model #?

If you're on a windows machine...You can check what type of modem you have and update the drivers from the Modem Control Panel.

  • Navigate to your Control Panel from the Start Menu.
  • Choose 'Modem' or 'Phone and Modem Options'
  • From here you can add/remove/view your modem's specifics.

If you would like to check to make sure your drivers are updated you can do so from the modem properties under the Drivers tab.

I agree with Webmaster, though. There are a few modem/PC tweaks you can do but I would more suspect the line quality.

You may want to set yourself up for a line noise test. Has anyone that lives close to you put up an electric fence? You can also contact your phone company and have them run a data test over the phone. You'll be able to see from that if the lines in your area are capable of a fast internet connection.

that is a good idea...but line noise comes from more crazy things than an electric fence...we have had rats get into boxes and cause some line noise

We have had people that have called in at our call center that lived next to electrical fences and such, we are out in the country. I always seen in my experience if you are near high electrical appliances and such that it could cause interference in your telephone lines. I've seen it where I live. Just wanted to throw out some unknown possibilities hehe.
