Dial up Networking does not detect hangup

Everything used to work before I had to reinstall windows 95.  I choose not to use NEC's restore cd to install win 95 because of all the crap it adds.  I also upgraded to the 'b' version on windows 95.  Now, when I connect to the internet the connection speed is always listed at whatever the max connect speed is set too even when I connect to the 14.4 modems.  Also, if something happens and I get disconnected the computer never detects the hangup  I can even pick up the phone and I have a dialtone?  It says it is still connected and stays that way for hours.  I have to tell it to disconnect and then reconnect to restore the connection. Is this a driver problem or what?  I have tried upgrading to Dial up networking 1.2, but that did not help.
Thanks,
Tom

Tom -
Have you checked your modem properties?
When you check the properties of the Dial-up networking connection under the General Tab click the configure button for the modem displayed,  then click connection, under call preferences make sure the disconnect if idle........ is selected and set to your time of preference- click the Advanced button, make sure you are using Hardware flow control. Also select the Record a log file so that addtional data can be provided to troubleshoot if this does not correct the problem.
I will await your reply.

No, It turned out to be the driver.  I finally found the right driver for the modem, and now it reports the correct connection speed, and detects hangups.

It could be your "modem-initialization-string".
One of the options available in some modems
is to display the "actual" connection speed,
rather than the "internal" speed
(usually 28800 or 57600 or 115200).
Which modem do you have?
What initialization-string is suggested
in the manual which accompanies the modem?
For example, use 'AT&F1' for most USR modems.

I'm posting Tom H's solution so it can be saved.
