Questions for the Browser Side

First, here are the things you might try if your browser seems slow or unresponsive:

Is Your Modem On?

If you have an external modem, the power light should be lit to indicate that the modem is on.

Is Your Modem Connected to Your Computer?

If you have an external modem, make sure the modem cable is connected to your computer. Then try manually sending something to the modem. From a Linux shell you can do this:

% echo AT > /dev/modem

From a DOS prompt on a Windows machine you can do this:

% echo AT > COM1

If your modem is connected, you will see the send and read lights flash as the modem responds OK to the AT command. If the lights do not flash, either the modem is not connected, or you have configured it for the wrong COM port, PCMCIA slot, or other attachment point.
