USR Sportster Winmodem

i bought a USR 56K internal modem and added it in P2B.When i boot comp.it display:
ASUS P2B ACPI BIOS Revision 1005
Award Plug and Play Bios Extension v1.0A
Initialize Plug and Play cards...
Card-01:U.S. Robotics Inc. Sportster Winmodem 33
PNP Init completed
my Cwin98 also detect it is Winmodem 33.6
i installed 56K driver received from dealer(not original disk),modem worked very slow.But when i installed Sportster Winmodem 33.6 driver downloaded by usr ,it can work well.
i can't find it's product code on it but i use usr modem wizard to detect it and said it's code is 00112503,VXD date 11/08/96 and told me it is USR Sportster 33600 Winmodem
(My other device:Creative PCI128,Creative Banshee 16M Ram)
is my modem a 100% 33.6K modem?
is it PnP problem?(because USR always has PnP problem)
i guess it is 33.6K modem but i want to know ACTUAL answer.
i can't install driver in Cwin98,can anyone please point me exactly to the right direct (URL) or where I can get this.  
(i just can find the driver for Version 95B)
Remark:the card label:SPORTSTER MODEL 0478 with FCC standard

WIN98, and newer versions of WIN95 have a "details" tab
within "modem-properties".  Try it.
The 'ATInn' commands sent to the modem should cause the modem to "identify" itself,
especially 'ATI7' (product configuration) and 'ATI9' (PnP status).

Not if it was represented to you as a 56K modem.

You really should go to http://WWW.56K.COM, and read the
'Troubleshooting 56K modems, especially modems that are slower than they should be' guide,

I could repeat all the information here,
but it's easily accessible there,
and should answer all your questions.

When you tried what Otta said, was your actual modem not reported on the details list?
