I have a Sportster Winmodem 56 K internal with x2 Technology. A half year ago i downloaded the exe File to upgrade the V90 Standard. It runs then at 115200 bps and it works really fast. Everything was perfect. After the Setup i had to wrote AT&F1&W in the Hyper Terminal of Win95.
Now suddenly my Modem works with 31200 bps. I downloaded the file again and made another setup. I type again AT&F1&W in the Hyper Terminal and made a connection. But now is nothing changed. It still runs with 31200 bps. I deinstalled my modem and reinstalled it. I replay my Setup for V90 but nothing happened. What can i do now to come back to V90. I have to say that my phone number has changed and my PC is now on another plug in but the line type is the same as the last one. My ISP is supporting V90 for sure so what can i do ??? I have Win 95 233 mmx Pentium one and 98 MB ram edo. Please help me !!

Your puter <--> Your modem <--------> Their modem <--> Their puter

          DTE rate           DCE rate            DTE rate
           38,400             14,400              57,600

Although you were working at 115200 baud, that DOES NOT MEAN the whole communication runs at that speed. Those 115200 are simply
the "DTE rate". If your modem runs at 56k (the "DCE rate"), total communication will neve go faster than that; the final speed will be given by THE LOWEST rate in the chain:

Your puter <--> Your modem <--------> Their modem <--> Their puter

          DTE rate           DCE rate            DTE rate
           38,400             14,400              57,600

In this example, the final speed will be 14.4K

Regarding your problem, I think you must assure the quality of your new phone line really supports the speed you want to reach.

It could be possible that your phone line has a fault

Control application downtime with dependency maps

Visualize the interdependencies between application components better with Applications Manager's automated application discovery and dependency mapping feature. Resolve performance issues faster by quickly isolating problematic components.

Just to expand on what Vikiing said:

That 115,200 speed that was being reported is the PORT speed (modem to PC),and has nothing to do with the true LINE speed,which is what is now being reported.It's likely that you were ALWAYS connecting at 33,600 or below and just didn't know it.

SGTEGL,
look at the 'WWW.56K.COM' web-site;
there is lots of good information about "slow" connections.
