    off to "never ever" land
    hes right
    its kilo BITS per second
    divide by 8 and u get the actual figure for ur downloads
    thats 4kBps
    u shouldve gone for a minimum of 64 kbps
    atleast its a lil faster than dial up
    btw just for ur information dialup is 56.6 kbps MAX ... tho u dun get above 52 kbps .. that too if ur luck
    one more thing ... kbps is kilobits per second
    and kBps is kilo bytes per second
    just for future reference ;)

    what ur talkin abt is certain tweaks which help increasin performance by a slight margin ... say 2-5 % not more
    u wont be able to get even dial up speeds. ..
    so for that matter i aint giving u the tweks either

    all i can say is invest a lil more and get a 64kbps connection
    and since ur new to this ... also ask him what ur download limit will be
    ie. how many MB a month can u download ? or is it unlimited
    there are various packages .. pick one that suits u
