Thread: Anyone Help?

  1. #1
    Over the last week I have been having problems with my internet speed. I'm only on a 56k modem, but when I look at my staus after connecting, it says 14.4, or 27 or 18..etc. I've asked the internet provider and they say there is no problems on any nodes. I've run a virus/trojan check no problems. MY computer says its working perfectly, however when I run a diagnostic I get the message

    "The port that the modem is using is currently open by another application....."


    How can I find out what application is using this port and is there anything I can do about it?

    more than likely you get this message because you are trying to check the port while connected to the internet. If you are having slow connection times it is your phone line, it has line noise or static. Call the phone company.
