What type of router do you use?
My main reason for going to cable broadband instead of dsl is because we are connected to a private phone company with equipment that is a bit on the outdated side. Recently, when dialing in on dialup we get connection speeds of 32, 37, 38, 42. etc. but the computer cannot communicate with the service provider because of noise on the line. It gets worse when it's hot because of what I am told is ac interference. The phone co. says our system was built for phone service who knows only how long ago. They are supposed to be upgrading to dsl capability but I can't get an answer on when or what quality because we asre in a rural area and the interconnects are not in place at this time. It also sounds like all of the wiring is not being replaced ,only the trunk lines. If they manage to get a quality dsl I may switch back but in reality if internet telephone works well I may switch to that as it is comparably priced to what I pay now with the exception that long distance would be a better bargain through the internet phone.
