hi, I have a friend that told me he suddenly has these "speed boosts" suddenly his comp is running with a regular dialup modem speed, but suddenly, some day u dial and you get 22kbps downloads! He uses a comp made by himself(clone), with an External Motorola Modem, The ISP is Avantel. (for mexico, you americans may know it best as WORLDCOM)
I was first freaked out; btw, i am still freaked out, the max i have ever gotten in downloads, kazaa or explorer is 7kbps, for a couple of seconds.
Edit: The modem is a Motorola Speed, i dont know what model, but i forgot to put that in.
