RE: Modem connection at 115200 bps

I am having trouble with a Diamond voice 56E External modem.  
When it connects it says 115200 bps.  I know that this is incorrect and is usually caused by incorrect drivers.  I have downloaded and installed the latest drivers, but have had no luck.

Any suggestions would be appreciated

Yes this is a common bug in windows, dont worry about it.
Basically your machine is talking to the modem faster than the modem is talking to the internet ISP.

You can change the baud rate for the modem, if that does not effect it. ignore it, it wont do any harm.

It is actually showing the baud rate of your communication port which you can change in the modem properties. It is not the speed with which you modem is communicating with the Internet, but it is the speed at which your computer's serial port is capable of communicating with a serial device such as a modem.

Thanks guys, I realise that it is showing the baud of the serial port.  This indicates that the modem is not negotiating correctly and is displaying the port rate.  I am going to update the modems firware to see is this will fix the problem.

What is the model number?

What driver did you try??

Your problem is from an incorrect driver, you may have to use an older driver instead of the latest driver available, the new driver may not work correctly, it may work but but that does not mean it is the right driver.

Here is a few drivers you can try.
