I'm pretty decent with using computers, but I know very little about various hardware. I have one desktop PC, and have no intentions or interest in any "wireless" applications at this time. I have DSL provided by Qwest, and use the Actiontec GT-701WG DSL modem that they provided me with when I signed up. I have enjoyed browsing forums like BC for a few years now, and have learned just about every tip and trick to make Firefox run faster. That said, on to my questions:
Would a different modem increase my Internet speed? If no, then my next questions are void. But if yes: Would it work properly simply by hooking it up, or would I have to contact Qwest to check for compatibility? Can anyone recommend any specific makes and models, and perhaps supply some tips on a reputable retailer where I could get a good price for one?
Thank you to all who take the time to reply.
