it stayed like it for 20 min. that isnt my fastest tho, i got 22Kbs on direct connect for 10 min without dropping. Direct connect seems to be very fast for me, the fastest ive had on anything else is 12Kbs without droping, and that was on kazzaa light.
i know dude. but also i have overcloked my modem connection speed to 115k using registry changes (i got some doc on how to do it on direct connect) so it always connects to 115k.
I duno if that effects your theory but i forgot to tell ya
What you have actually done is change your port speed (this is how fast your modem talks to your PC, and not how fast your modem talks to other PCs; on the net).
It doesn't connect at 115k, if it tells you that - that is because your modem drivers are reporting the Port speed rather than the actual connection speed.
Modems operate at a maximum of 56k, which translates to as someone said earlier around 7k per second max. Bear in mind to get that kind of speed your phoneline would have to be perfect - and you would have to live right next door to your telephone exchange.
