The modem experts usually hang out in the Modem area, maybe you'd get better advice if you posted there and deleted this question.

Faster dialing is usually enabled by adding something like S11=60 to your init string.

Minimizing lost carrier is the holy grail of modem setup, especially in this day of winmodems. One trick is to disable all the v.90 stuff if you can't get a 56k connection anyway. S32=32 disables X2 for most sportsters, S32=98 disables both X2 and v.90.

Also try lowering the speed your computer talks to your modem (port speed) to 57,600 or even 38,400.. this has been known to help.

There's a good web page about this stuff at www.56k.com...

Good luck.
