    I face some problem while accessing internet from my laptop. I am having broadband connection with 56kbps. I can able to access any website. But its very very slow. Download is at the rate of 4 or even below 2 kbps. But at the same time i have connected another machine (desktop) paralelly with the same connection which has the speed of more than 30kbps irrespective of the cable (one is connected thru' N/W cable & another one is thru' USB with external modem)
    Is that due to sharing bw two machines? or anything need to be changed on Laptop?

    I have given the specs.
    Laptop: Compaq Presasrio - AMD 2.2GHZ, 120GB HDD, 1 GB RAM

    Get away from sharing connections and use a linksys or dlink broadband router.... if it is still slow test it with a different computer other than yours. If it is still slow... call your providor.

    Your post is confusing. Do you have TWO computers DIRECTLY connected to the cable modem, one using a network cable, and one using a USB cable?

    If so, that's probably the problem! Most cable modems / providers don't support this.
