Cannot connect over 9600 bps on any COM port using any modem !!
Posted on 1997-06-13
I have a US Robotics 33.6 v.Everything PCMCIA modem (on COM4) that I can connect to ANY other modem at only 9600 bps. I have tried an external USR Sportster 28k on COM2 and had the same results. I have tried ALL the "Maximum Speed" settings in the modem properties, with & without Hardware Flow Control.
My communications driver is comm.drv 5856 bytes dated: 7/11/1995 09:50am.
I have also tried the Modem device via the Device Manager in the System icon in the Control Panel... no luck.
Are there any useful shareware diagnostic utilities that could shed some light on this problem? Any ideas would be appreciated.
