Recently received modem in NC for Verizon.com. DSL service just started in this area of mountains. I am approximately 24000 feet from repeater and 15000 feet is "last/best usage". I have a Toshiba laptop and it will not connect in timely manner. First tech calls seemed to lean to a modem problem? But tech came to house and said he thought my laptop was either too old or too many programs were "open" competing with internet startup. I don't know...I brought laptop home to FL where I have ATT DSL and it still does not start up in appropriate amount of time.
I am really sorry if this post does not make sense as I am hardly literate in computerese. Plesae help if possible...
