What's a modem initialization string?

Before your modem software dials a phone number, it initializes (inits) the modem by sending it a series (string) of commands, typically Hayes commands. These commands configure the modem's options for things like error correction, data compression, flow control, and many other parameters. The modem manual should list the Hayes commands the modem recognizes, and what effect each command has.

The important thing about modem init strings is that having the right one often makes the difference between connecting and not. Init strings are fairly specific to each modem. The string that made your friend's modem fly may not work at all for your modem.

Not all programs use simple init strings. Some use settings files, such as Windows 95 .inf files, Mac CCL modem scripts, etc.

Tip: You may also want to try one of these generic init strings:

* AT&F

* AT&F1

* AT&F&C1&D2

* AT&F1&C1&D2

modem strings:

...

Tip 2: For K56flex modems, try one of these generic init strings:

* AT&F+MS=56

* AT&F+MS=56S202=32

* AT&F1+MS=56

* AT&F1+MS=56S202=32

Where do I put the modem init string?

close and reboot

in addition,install RegSeeker and delete obselete entries from here

Speed up your connection

Do you remember the days of dial-up? It used to take days to log onto

the Internet. I exaggerate, but it sure was slow.

Broadband has made the Internet much easier and more fun to use. You

don't have to suffer the modem racket and the sign-on. And pages load

faster.

Still, broadband could be much faster. For example, Japan's broadband

can be 30 times faster than ours!

If your high-speed Internet service seems pokey, try Google's Web

Accelerator. This free program will juice things.

It routes requests through Google servers. Popular pages are already

stored there. And the servers do nothing but handle Web Accelerator

traffic.

Web Accelerator works with both Firefox and IE on Windows machines.

How do you want to speed up or clean your computer?

Well, if you want to shell out some money to make it run faster you would probably need to upgrade your comp by getting some more RAM, maybe a new video card, or a external hard drive.

A Recommended External Hard Drive would be a Western Digital My Book. All you need is to plug it into your wall and the plug the USB into your Computer.

Stuff might need to be moved to another drive or deleted

--------------------------------------...

But to make it run faster for free:

Do a disk defragment this compresses your files and data, to access it click Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Defragmenter

--------------------------------------...

Also Do A Disk Clean Up

This cleans out old temporary files

To Access it Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Clean Up

Now in disk clean up there is a list of objects that need to be checked off in order to be cleaned. So here is a list of files that can be deleted safely:

Put a check mark beside:

Temporary Internet Files

Offline Webpages

Microsoft Office Temporary Files

Microsoft Error Reporting Files

Temporary Files

Compress Old Files

Now just put a check mark on those files and your set and hit Yes for everything and don't touch anything else.

--------------------------------------...

Not Required, but if you want to, or are a gamer it is good to know how to disable your Processes. Since processes do take up resources.

Close your Background Processes if you want to by going Ctrl+Alt+Delete then click Processes.

Note: ONLY End Processes with your Username (the person who owns the comp) on it.

For Example.

Username:

Jess J

Since it has your User Name in it so end it.

Do Not Processes Named:

Taskmger.exe

Explorer.exe

And Do Not End User Name Processes:

SYSTEM

NETWORK

LOCAL

If you do end a process that doesn't have your user name on it just restart the comp everything will be ok.

--------------------------------------...

It could also be you need updates for IE, so go to Windows Update, for RAM updates, go to , most others would also recommend this as well, as a good RAM Provider. Last but not least it could be your computer has Spyware or Adware or a Virus so get a free Virus Scanner like AVG, Kapersky, NOD 32. Spyware: Ad-Aware 2007.

Have A Nice Day

Ken.
