I have a new 56K PCMCIA Modem with x2 and v.90.  I have installed the modem, and it works anc connects fine, but I cannot get it to report a connect speed other than the port speed of 115,200.  On my two other computers, after connecting, if you hover the mouse over the icon in the system tray, it reflects a connect speed, of 33,600 or whatever the connect speed is.  How can I configure the new PCMCIA modem under windows 95 to report its connect speed in typical terms of 44.6 or 33.6 or whatever is the connect speed it negotiated when it connected?  Please give me specifics of what to try, init strings etc.

Control Panel - Modems - Properties - Connection - Advanced - Extra Settings: add W2 in the box.

If this doesn't work,you'll have to edit the init string directly in \Windows\Inf,then rebuild the driver database and re-install the modem.Let me know and I'll post that procedure.
