    Exactly what do you have specified for the modem?

    Similar problems... with another ISP, not Earthlink.

    What I'm seeing:
    - Slower connections
    - takes longer to establish the connection... 30 seconds instead of 10
    seconds. Also takes 30 seconds for the damn thing to disconnect, was 5
    seconds.
    - From time to time the connection just stops, hangs for 30 seconds, then
    continues.
    - Dropped connections.

    I see the problems with a TiBook, 550MHz, OS X 10.2.3

    The old (better) situation was a Pismo, OS 9.2

    What's up? Is the modem inferrior in the TiBook? Bad/different script? Or
    what?
