Laptop Vista dialup modem - Access Limited Connectivity

\015 For the first 6 months I was connecting at top speed for my location 48-50kbps, then BANG!\015\012\015\012Now I am connecting at 32-34kbps.\015\012\015\012I have checked with Toshiba, I have the most recent Agere Modem Driver.\015\012\015\012I have 2 other computers, Different brand of modem & both are XP. These 2 are unchanged using the same ph line, ph line-wire, plug, etc. They both connect @ 48-51kbps, 48kbps is the best performance.\015\012\015\012My Toshiba Laptop w/Agere brand modem is a X205.\015\012I suspect software has changed something.\015\012\015\012I can not relate any new software with this problem.\015\012While I do use Dialup for all my Internet connections there arn't many times that Windows isn't doing an automatic-update.\015\012\015\012I am sure I have Change my Firewall software from the supplied Mcaffee Total Protection to Norton NIS 2008 & now 2009. As stated, I cant relate installing these at the time the problem started.\015\012\015\012Did I mention, When the dialer connects, the icon on the task bar (2-small monitors) there is a yellow triangle/exclamation for a few seconds then the yellow sign disappears and the 2 monitors apprear normal.\015\012\015\012When the yellow sign is there & A hover the mouse over it a message appears, ''Access Limited Connectivity''.\015\012\015\012Once I tried booting into Safe mode w/network ability but I could not connect, I did not try again.\015\012\015\012Once, I tried connecting to a listed phone number that tests modem speed or performance, my connection speed was the same---slow 33.2kbps.\015\012\015\012I have no extra init strings but I have played around trying a few suggestion, disabling V92 or something, forceing a faster connect speed - nothing seems to help. \015\012My ISP does not have the latest modems & I don't remember now if its V92, but all three off our computers modems are V.92 compliant.\015\012\015\012I tried one hack with no change - Reset the windows vista TCP/IP Winsock, in case of corrupton. I don't know what all it was suppose to do or not do? \015\012\015\012Any suggestion other than Installing My OS will be greatly appreciated.\015\012\015\012No conflicts in the hardware driver section & no other problems.\015\012\015\012Dave\015

  • Make sure you have the latest drivers available for your network adapter, consult the MS Vista Network troubleshooter available here
  • \015\012
  • You may wish to use your Device Manager to review your hardware and address any problems that appear there.
  • \015\012
  • Monitor processes use using task manager or process explorer to see if your ram is being taxed unduly by the running processes. (I mention this because Norton is known to be a bit heavy handed in its use of system memory, you could try an alternative AV like Avira, Kaspersky, Eset NOD32 and see how it affects connections).
