Hi folks

My sister bought a second hand computer from a fair last week. It was preloaded with Windows ME / IE 6. Everything works fine except she is having problems connecting to the internet. There is a 56k modem installed which is showing as working correctly in device manager. She can connect to an ISP get past the username/password screen but then the pages time out. The modem was only sending/receiving about 400kb of data and then stalling even though still connected. I went and bought a 56k USB external modem from PC World today but the problem is the same. Tried installing AOL 9. This worked until it got to the welcome homepage and could access e-mails but then stalled again. Could not search the web.

Any thoughts folks. Its doing my head in.
