need help with upgrading hardware

Post by cjohn »

I need to know what kind of hardware upgrades I can make to help speed up my cable modem. I have a pentium 200 mmx with 64mb ram. Can upgrade it to pentium 2 300 with 128mb ram? what should I do?

The system you have is fast enough so it won't slow down your cable modem unless you run 20 applications at the same time Image. The only hardware upgrade you can do to eventually increase your transfers a bit is the network card. It should be PCI, and good brandname, 3COM for example. However, if you already have a decent card, you won't seee any improvement.
