    Navigation was terrible mostly was due to my 14K modem. And get this: it was already used (bought it second hand).
    So, I was charged by the hour for a download speed of less than half of the dial-up standards.

    And softmodems were cheaper but drained the CPU to work! Good memories.

    Never noticed the CPU drain but I did own a softmodem.
    I imagine on a 233Mhz computer I would of noticed it. That was the PC I was using at that time.
    Was the drain noticeable on max. speeds?

    I remember a friend of mine was always showing off his US Robotics modem. And I still have nostalgia for the sound that the modem makes when you dialup to start an internet session. That sound bring back so many memories!

    Like this:


    Mine sounded really awful. I guess modems sound different if they are internal and use the system speaker as a sound device.

    Good question. I really don't remember.

    You were able to turn the speaker off, though

    I remember using pillows in an attempt to stop that noise. I was trying to reconnect after 00:00... It would of been OK if it was just one reconnect but once I was disconnect I could not connect again due to the limited number of connections available for that account. So I tried ...and tried... and tried in the middle of the night.

    I thought, that 256 Kbps was the minimum in India this is too low.
