Modem Speed Indication

When I connect to the internet provider I always get the 115,000 connection speed
 which is impossible to get.  Prior to my new computer with a zoom 56K modem
 flashed to V90, I always got a message saying the connect speed was
42.000 to 50.000 which is about the right speed.

My question is how can I get the modem to display the correct speed instead of the
maximum speed?

I am running Windows 98 on my old computer and on my new computer.

Wayne, you may be right, but I am not sure just what the modem should be set to.  It is a  Zoom 56K 2819 pnp, but I flash upgraded it to a V90 and when I loaded the drivers provided with the Flash upgrade it came up as just a 56K internal fax modem and worked fine and displayed the correct modem speed.

Then I bought a new computer and had the Zoom modem installed in the new computer.  I also gave them the new drivers, but the modem now says Zoom 56K internal 2819 pnp.  I could ask the computer people just what they did but I am reluctant to do so as it works fine except for the speed indication.  I am sure that I am getting the same speed that I was because it is much faster than a 28.8 connection.

You can safely change the driver for the modem if you have the driver disk provided and then it would be like it was before.  If you need help in doing this let me know.
