    Hi
    Does someone know how i can determine my dial up speed? Is there a free program, that i can leave in my systray, that could be used to determine my speed? Or is there something in Windows (i use Windows ME) that can tell me my dial up speed (accurately) and be put in the system tray so i can view it regularly? Thanks for any info.

    Hi and welcome to Wilders,

    I never used ME myself, but this worked on both my old 98SE system and my current XP-home one so I assume it's in ME too.

    Somewhere in the Properties of your dial-up (someone else can probably steer you to exactly where more accurately than me) there should be a tick-box for adding an icon to the toolbar when you're connected. If you mouse-over this icon, it'll show you connection speed as well as bytes received and sent -- and you can right-click on it for additional info (Status) such as how long you've been connected.

    Best,
    Mike

    Hi MikeBCda

    Can you tell me how to find the properties of my dial up in Windows 98se since it's so similar to Windows me? Can it be accessed from the Windows control panel under perhaps modems, or network or something else? Thanks.

    Hi again,

    If you don't have a "Network Connections" shortcut on your desktop, it'll be in Control Panel. Open Network Connections then right-click on your dial-up and select Properties, and that tick-box should be right at the bottom of the front page (or at least in XP -- and I know it's there somewhere in 98SE, sorry don't remember if it's the same place).
