A few months ago I switched ISP providers. I use to have AOL dial up. I couldn't get high speed because I live in the country. Then a local ISP provider provided higher speed so I got rid of the AOL dial up but kept the AOL sign in name. Don't know and can't remember if this problem started before or after I switched providers, but at any rate here's my problem. I can no longer attach files to my e-mails that contain pictures or videos. I can send e-mails with attachments that contain just text. I can open e-mails that contain attachments with videos or pictures, and I can forward e-mails containg these, but I cannot attach any that contain those. I had a guy come out who teaches computer classes. He ran a speed test on my computer. We are suppose to be getting 256 download speed and 128 upload speed. The test showed we are getting 240-245 download, and only 10-20 upload speed. He thought this could be part of the problem or maybe THE problem. I had the provider come out and they checked all the connections, and they even put all new connections on, but that did't help. They went up on the tv tower to check the receiver signal and it showed an extremely weak signal. When they installed it they said they had a strong signal. When I e-mail someone with an attachment that contains either a video or pictures, the progress bar starts moving very slow and when it gets to maybe 8 or 9% it knocks me off line. Is my low upload speed the real problem or is it something else? Anybody that could help me or give me step by step instuctions would be appreciated.
