The connection speed can be limited by other factors than just the modem. Though the service provider may advertise 56K, often they do not provide services in the real world that will achieve that speed. Also the physical infrastructure over which you are connecting can affect the speed. I find rural areas seldom achieve anywhere near the anticipated speed. Is there a chance you can move the computer to another location to see if there is any difference.

Hi Haddpc,

maybe try updating your driver... i used to have machine at home that would never connect above 30 and yet a new computer with an update modem gave me full speed...

It can be a driver issue as well, but you have tried different modems, so I would think that has nothing to do with it. Sorry I have no other suggestions at this time. I assume some others will have some advise for you.

You might want to point a 20 point question in the hardware/modem forum pointing to this question. It might bring it to the attention of folks who specialize more with hardware. Following link explains a pointer question:
