Cant Download/Slow Internet

Specs: Windows Vista, Amd 64 3000+ @ 2.4ghz / 2g

since i moved to a new house only a qauter of a mile back from were i was living. my connection speeds are slower & i have to hunt for that fast connection. than when i get it. i have issue downloading files. they either start to download or they seem like they freeze & than say download complete. no matter what the size of the file is or where im downloading the file from

i have tryed Avast anti-virus 5.0 to see if i have virus but to no luck. i have tryed to mess with modem settings port speed & such.

i have Netzero hi-speed 3g dial-up
running on:

Vista Ultimate 32bit
2 gbs ram
Amd 64 3000+ 2.4ghz

so im not sure what could be causing the issue of not being able to download a single file. more less let me still connect. would maybe uninstalling & reinstalling Netzero from a disk help or what.

things iv tryed.

resetting the windows firewall
changing port speed on the modem & in the network connection for the connection.
running a line from the phone box ( the one outside on the side of the house ) to the pc 50ft line. ( but didnt mattter when living at other house )

any help would be great to fix this issue so i can go on downloading & playing freelancer shattered worlds online.

High Speed 3G Dial up? Leave it to NetZero to mess up &
confuse people with terms like 3G and Dialup together with
marketing. Geez.

So your using a High Speed Dial up basically via a phone

If yes, your new location has some sort of telephony
connection issues or abnormalities I would say if the
connection is that much slower. Boots on the ground (tech on
site) would be needed to look at the phone wires and

You could maybe get the phone company out there for free to
have a looksy.

Just another stupid saying...

im using accelerated dial-up. which is called Netzero Hi-speed 3g.

yea im thinking that it might be that. been thinking about that. the phone company is the newly founded Windstream. great phone. cant blame them for the old lines. that another company should maintain.

il give em a call have them come out & check the lines.

If it's available, yes, it would come through the phone line, but you'd have to ask Windstream if they provide it, or look for other DSL providers in your area.

well they came out & check the lines. they said

theres humming on the line. which is a magnet loop. which i can hear on the phone.
also said that the lines are not grounded. which the man said they would have to rerun the lines from huntington all the way back out to were i live. and relay all the lines. which is over 5 miles wroth of line from the town to were i live. & that dont count the miles of line that is out were i live.

so im taking it that that there is nothing they can do.

also they said we cant get Dsl even thro they offer it. & i have even read on there site stating

" Dsl is offered thro the same lines already in you home "

but it appears that they cannot offer to us. i did manager to ask for a Dsl Line Filter which i now have on my phone than connecting to my pc.just did it to see what would happen which is nothing.

i thank you for replys. im not having any luck with the phone company.

the dsl filter does not help any. which i didnt think it would. as its a magnetect loop on the phone lines which you can hear humming on the phone. so if its that loud than the modem is picking up alot more.

i was wanting to know if there might be any ways to lessin the sound/noise on the lines.

Yes, there are noise filters available, I'm not a telephony expert though.
