New 56K modem, 36K connections
Posted on 2001-08-09
I am running Win98SE. AMD Duron 750 MHZ, 128MB RAM (new PC, fresh install of WIN98SE and the modem is spankin' new). I just bought a 56K modem, installed it and can get no better than a 36K connection to my ISP. The little drop down box in the modem properties is set to 115???K connection and the box that askes if you want to only connect at this speed is NOT checked. My old PC (sitting right next to it) connects to the ISP at 49K every time.
I heave comparred the settings side by side (2 CPU's on 2 different monitors) and ALL the settings are the same.
I would switch the modems but I need to have the old PC in tact for at least a few more weeks : (, otherwise, it's nothing but partsville!! I did use the driver from the CD ROM that came with the new modem upon installation.
Thanks in advance, E-E ROCKS!!
