    hello all,

    My brother unfortunately has only a phone line option for connecting to the internet. I am waaaaay out of the loop when it
    comes to phone connections and was wondering if there is a faster way to connect than using the old school 56Kbs. modems.....

    thanks,
    ron

    DSL is a high speed phone connection, but you have to live within 15,000
    feet of a telephone company repeater, AND your phone company has to offer
    DSL.

    If you can get one a,"Full Hardware Modem" is the best.

    HTH :)

    If not the old PCI HCF semi-hardware modems are cheap and not
    bad.Avoid"Soft" modems.
