Simple Technologies 56K Problem

I have a IBM ThinkPad 765L Running Windows 95 with 64MB RAM.  I have installed a SimpleTechnologies 56K PCMCIA modem.  I installed their software, downloaded updates and installed them.  I can't get a connection faster them 28K.  I know it's not my ISP because I get 56 consistently with my desktop connecting with the same account.  

I don't know what else to try.  IBM and SimpleTechnologies have not helped,

Thanks.

This sounds a lot like you're using a different modem protocol than the ISP...most likely your ISP is using v.90, and you're using a different protocol.

Simple Technologies has a v.90 firmware update for their Communicator modems, but there are two types.  One for modems with simpleJack, and one for modems without it (and I don't know which kind you have).  Here are the links:

SimpleJack:
