I just bought a Hayes V.90/K56 modem but my question is I was looking at the dial up numbers for my ISP & there is a number for X2 technology and another number for v.90/k56. What's the difference between the 2. Is there any advantage to either one?

Hi,

     There is really no performance difference between the two.  X2 is a technology developed by one company ( i believe US Robotics) and K56 was developed by another.  Both companies are pushing for their technology and hoping that it will becomed the standard.  The only advantage to having one is if the technology (x2 or k56) becomes popular or supported greatly by ISPs nationwide.  The only thing you should look at when deciding between the two technologies is whether YOUR ISP supports it and stated that they will continue to.
