Im currently having trouble with my modem, i dont even know if its a 56k modem, the highest it ever connects on AOL/Netzero is 2800bps, its a HSP56 modem by PCtel. I hope my phone line even supports 56k, ive tried the line tests from USS Robotics but its either busy or not answered. Maybe its my computer? I have a Celeron 733mhz, 128 RAM, and Geforce 4. But im getting a new comp in a week with a better modem that supports V.90. I ping around 400-600 in Counter strike and all the other 56kers get 200-300...i hope my new computer fixes this and its not my phone line i dont want to get that upgraded..

My experience has been that the USR line test # has been out of service (same as you experience) when I've tried it recently....

If you don't want to wait for new computer/modem, you could start with the demarc test to see if you get better connect rate
and/or check to see if you have the latest driver for your modem...
