Speeding Up Windows

Faster Dialing

Double-click the Modem icon in the Control Panel. Click on the Properties button. Select the Connection tab. Click on the Advance... button. On the Extra Settings text box, type S11=50. That will speed up the dial tone from 100 milliseconds ( the default ) to 50 milliseconds.

Speedier Connection

To solve this, right-click your ISP connection and select Properties. Click on the Server Types tab. Uncheck Log on to Network, NetBEUI & IPX/SPX Compatible.
