Adding RAM on Emac to increase Internet speed
I was wondering. A friend of mine has a Emac 700mhz equipped with a 56k modem. She has an "intermediary" speed internet connection. With that, she can't really view a video - let's say from Youtube. It just keeps hanging.
She only has 256mg of RAM which can be boosted to 1G, and I was wondering if by doing so, it would have a significant impact on her Emac capacity to view such content.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Best regards, B.

More RAM will definitely make the overall computer itself run zippier.
But with regards to the running the internet, man, that modem is what's dragging it down.
Time to go broadband, I would say.
No amount of RAM can make up for internet speed on a modem.

all macs have built in ethernet, dial up was lost with the 80's.
Test your internet connection here
This will tell you your internet speed...Roadrunner broadband for example is 500X faster than dial up
