Post by computerhead » Sun Jan 20, 2008 5:36

hi, i have just installed ver 3.4 and i love it but i have one problem with my modem---it is external dialup modem,when i connect to the internet it runs very slow i mean it is slow, i configured kpp ( i have done this before with mandrake ) i have tried everything but the modem still runs very very slow---please help---thanks.the modem is a spirit magnum 56k v90, i have not had problems with this modem on other linux distros,there must be a setting that i have overlooked, i really believe this is software, perhaps i need a special driver for this modem--i dont know as i said i have configured kpp before with other distros without problems,there may be some sort of default setting in sabayon that i have missed.
