How do I get EarthLink Accelerator?
You can get EarthLink Accelerator by installing our EarthLink Access Software or by downloading Accelerator separately (the Mac version of Accelerator is only available as a separate download). After you install EarthLink Accelerator, it will automatically begin running when you log in to our software.
To get Accelerator without EarthLink Access Software, simply close this window and select a Download button on the Accelerator page.TotalAccess users, to verify you have Accelerator:
We recommend Medium, because it improves your surfing speed significantly while only slightly reducing image quality. When using this setting, EarthLink Accelerator typically increases your experience between two and three times that of regular dial-up.
If you would like to maintain your original image quality, you can set the graphics setting to Minimum Speed and still surf significantly faster than regular dial-up.
Note: If you are using any setting besides Minimum Speed and wish to improve the quality of a graphic, you can hover over the graphic, right-click the mouse, and choose Refresh Picture with Full Quality, or you can select Refresh Page with Full Quality to improve the quality of all the graphics on the page at once.
