I've changed the physical location of the Sid box and the telephone
number that is being used to dial the ISP.
Everything else is the same.
Now the connection is at a lower speed than before: average 3000 B/s
while before it was 4500 B/s.
The sound of V92 dialup modem on connecting has changed: it used connect
right away, now it makes more additional sounds.
Is this due to the quality of the phoneline?
Yes. Anywhere from the CO to the inside wiring of the building your
box is in.
Anybody savvy on dialup lines?
I used to be... :\
Thanks Ron. I don't think I am going to get anywhere with Telmex: it is
a new installation, so they either messed up the installation or the
problem is in their circuits in the city, more likely.
