but rather than deal with all the hassles of xp you should keep win2k specially if nothing is wrong with it ;)

Is your modem a WinModem (software)? Maybe you just have the wrong version of drivers. Check and see what Microsoft recommends for you (Windows update)

This could be a problem with a winxp feature called QoS or Quality Of Service.

This is an annoying thing that MS added to winxp pro.

QoS reserves 20% of bandwith for it's service.

There is a way of uninstalling it but i don't know how and if it will do any diffrence as the 20% bandwith is onlu reserved when QoS is in use.

If u have jumpers on your modem u might have 2 change them, when going from 2k to XP with just a 56k modem in the old beta stages the modems never used 2 work, this maybe why you are getting slower speeds. Check the manufacturer of your modems website to see if they give any support for XP

Thanx for trying to help me :)

I did uninstall the Qos package no change :(

Some new drivers perhaps?
