Our email server will scan messages for spam. On some messages the server cannot reliably
determine if a message is SPAM, so it will prefix the subject with
[Possible Spam]. If you use a mail client you can filter these messages
automatically. Typically this will involve creating a message filter that looks for
[Possible Spam] in the subject line and moving the mail to a specified folder.
If you need assistance, please contact support.
There can be several reasons you connection speed may be slow. Below are a few things you can check:
If there are multiple device on your network, one of them may be "hogging" the available bandwidth. There could be a large download, a video stream or a OS update that is the cause.
Customers served through wholesale arrangements with Bell Canada will be subject to their traffic management policies which include the application specific rate limiting of certain non-time sensitive peer to peer file sharing applications during peak usage hours. Where technology permits, customers served directly by MNSi's equipment are not subject to Bell Canada's traffic management policies.
In addition to the above, it could be there are not enough people uploading to keep up with your download speed.
On DSL services, static or other noise on the line may cause speed issues. There could be a phone without an DSL filter or some other line trouble. Contact technical support for assistance.
If you have a router (Linksys, D-Link, etc...) you will need your MNSi username (firstname.lastname@example.org) and password. When setting up your router you will want to create a PPPoE connection and enter in your MNSi username and password. When setting up the connection if you see an option for MTU, set it to 1492. If you need any help with your router settings feel free to contact technical support
You should also be running the latest firmware on your router. Firmware updates include important bug fixes and can dramatically increase the reliability and security of your router.
Modemsite.com is a large source of information on 56k modems, including links to modem drivers.
A less than top speed connection is usually due to line quality limitations or high traffic areas. It is important to note that the initial connection rate is just that: initial. After the modem has negotiated a connection (especially a v.34 or K56Flex connection), it will occasionally renegotiate the line speed factoring in the line and traffic conditions. The idea is to get a good balance of performance and reliability. Trying to force a maximum-speed connection in such a case will often cause unstable connects or complete failure to connect and is not likely to change download times significantly.
