   I have been trying to determine why I can't download in the same time
that my mother right next door with the same computer can.  I had to remove
myself from the hostapix because it would take hours to download if many
pictures were sent.
   Well, after comparing everything.....I found that I connect at only 12000
bps and my mother connects at over 45000.  Why????
Remember, same computer, live within hollering distance(you can tell I am in
the "sticks"), same internet service, 56kmodem, Pll processor.
  Is there anything I can do to my connection that will "up" my bps?
Any help from computer minded people will be greatly appreciated.  You may
email me personally since this isn't hosta "stuff" but it sure affects the
way I "feed" my addiction.
