modem now zipping along

  palinka 17:25 26 Aug 2004

I wrote about my neighbour's modem problem (very slow) in this link click here
The modem removed was an Intel(R)536EP V.92; the replacement (which achieves around 44bps) is a Supra Express 56i Pro. So it looks as if it was an XP/Intel clash.
Just thought this information might help others who have similar problems.

My Diamond SupraExpress 56i V Pro "zips along" at 49.2kbps with Tiscali and 50.7 or 52kbps with Pipex...:-)

I've always found it's essential to get the very latest driver for it (the modem is about five years old) as I moved from Windows98, 98SE and now XP Pro.

Just for your interest, because Diamond has been taken over twice in the past few years, the following link may be of use if you do want the very latest driver:
