RAS connection speed

The servers running XP prof the client 98SE. I know both modems are Dlink (V.90 + Flex compatable@56k) Telephone connection is good (tried that) but cannot connect at anything faster than 31.6k between computers. (Individually they both run at about 50-54Kbs when directly connected to an isp.) I have a feeling the 30 odd k limitation on upload maybe the cause but would like to know if there are any programs available to boost this connection speed up?
PS This is just the connection between computers soley. Have tried software settings eg. portspeed, compression already. (Internet accessed via cable on server).
Any help would be greatful.

it does not depends only on one end, it actually depends on the modems on both ends

the idea is when the connection starts both modems negotiate the most reliable speed before the session starts, and I can assure you that with pstn lines the most reliable speed is 30 odd k, but withsome combination of modems, then can negotiate a speed higher than that but nver higher than 42k

and anything above 42k is misleading as this is the max capacity for pstn lines

cheers
