33.6 modem setup

Posted on 1997-04-18
Last Modified: 2013-12-16
I have just installed osr2 and windows doen't recognize the 33.6 Auslinx modem. It will boot and recognize the modem as a standard 28.8 modem but come up wanting software for a 33.6 modem. Does anybody know how to set up a 33.6 modem or where to get the drivers for this modem?

The modem is set up properly, 33.6 is a new standard as far as Win 95 is concerned..For the drivers I'd try the manufactorer or a good search engine..Maybe one is posted somewhere.After the drivers are loaded, you will probably see a connection rate of 24000bps..this is normal, as most 33.6 drivers use this as a base point (if you will) to upgrade from..(

The boot is recognizing the modem, but is missing the 33.6 drivers, and is asking for them..I'd try deleting the modem, and reinstalling it as a standard modem (generic) until you get the drivers..This will remove the search (error) for the new drivers..

I too have 33.6 MODEM that Win'95 OSR2 Device Manager recognizes as a 28.8 Rockwell PCMCIA (PCMCIA it certainly isn't). The modem seems to work OK, but I'd love to know if I'm getting the performance I should from it. How do I tell?

I finally tracked down the manufacturer of my modem on the web and got new drivers for it but the I've since been told that windows calls it 28.8 but will allow it to operate much faster than this (up to 115200). Don"t know if this is true.

Yes, well that's what happens with my 33.6 Modem also. Win'95 tells me it's running at 115200, but Windows still calls it 28.8.
I'd love to know exactly what's going on here. If you find out let me know
