I have a really frustrating problem. My PC is connected to the Internet via a 56K modem and a dial-up connection (yes, there are still a few of us left!). Normally I get a connection speed of 44 or 45K. An extension phone (basic corded phone, 12 buttons, no call display, no extra features) recently died and so I had to buy another no-frills corded phone. Now the problem is that I can not get a connection speed greater than 30K. I have to unplug the new phone in order to get a faster connection. Has anyone encountered this problem and if so, how was it solved? Thanks for any advice.
