    Your connection speed is totallyt limited by your telephone line quality and strength - are you in a country or remote area?

    Check your connection settings for starters, you may have it limited to 33.6kbps.

    does he have the same modem as you do?
    maybe the telephone line your using is long?

    besides.. even tho your brother is connected at 114, it dont mean he'll download at that speed..

    i used to get a connection of 36.6 but could download at 5.6KBps

    Im connecting at 54.6 the exchange is about 4 houses down from me. This will make a big differance when it comes to how good your internet connection will be. Definetly looking forward to my ADSL being re hooked up.

    i think i have 2 or 3 phone lines connected together and they aren't the thickest things, maybe if i replaced them with a single higher quality line i would get a higher speed...........
    and my brother doens't have the same modem, he hase a 33.6kbps modem, and even though he's getting a 114kbps connection, he can nly d/l at about half that speed
