Hi.. I am still wet behind the ears..Just ordered a Tata Indicom wireless phone connection with an internet zero rental plan They claim 70-90kbps speeds. Though i live in the midst of civilisation, my house is sorta landlocked and it could be a while before the "diggers" would be let in to wire-up broadband of any kind. I therefore chose the "Vayu Marg" for my internet.I am looking for some views on my brilliant? idea

I guess only Airtel does that digging work . Others take the easier route .going the aerial way...and had you applied for a dataone connection there wouldnt have been any wiring work ...heheh

Hi,My phone arrived last night and after batlling valiantly with their installation cd for over two hours, i got to download a 12MB file in about 20 minutes, at One past midnight. the phone display showed a RX rate varying between 164 and 86 ( sorry units not mentioned) while my firefox download window hovered around 8-10 KB per second. Could you bring me up-to-date with the math? Needless to say, i continue to be a newbie.thanks

i think we are still far away from a situation where wired phone technology is obselete. :) and digging helps. BSNL lines fails in rainy season inspite of the fact that they have also started laying the underground network of cables... airtel has been ultra reliable.

oldtimer and newbie?? ;) nice combination... :lol:anyhow, the unit most probably there is "kbps"...also, just check the "baud rate" set in ur phone...by default it is 115,200...which comes out to be 112.5 kbps...so that variation is acceptable, i think...

It all goes to show that with sufficient patience, you can teach an old dog new tricks :)
Thanks for the math...

And BTW this msgsrv32 is a nightmare..after i installed this phone, i have had to kill this task (win98 se) to get my dialer to connect. every time i booted afresh. After killing this, Yahoo messenger(and god knows what else) just doesn't start!
"msgsrv32(not responding)" ...Phew! :blink:

i am told that using HijackThis could help log this problem.. could anyone help?

Thanks for fishing out the the info for me, coolbuddy_79. It is pretty reassuring that it isnt a virus of some kind. :) However, while removing msgsvr32 from taskmanager allows me to connect to the internet, other things like the "save" dialog box for notepad and the ypager login window malfunction. It appears to be a necessary service but i do not know what other process is causing it the problems. :blink:
