Intel V.92 Modem

  Goolie 14:24 27 Apr 2003

I have an Intel 536EP V.92 Modem, When connected to NTL dial-up the reported connection speed is 31.2Kbps, and is downloading very slow.
The modem I used before this (56k V.90) was showing connected at 56Kps and was much faster.
I cannot use the old one as it was a AMR using modem riser on old mainboard.
Can anyone help?

how many things do you connected to your line i had a similar prob and had to disconnect the sky connection while on line. try the modem with just it connected

Ta for that ^wave^ but have already tried better with everything disconnected.
I think this may be a problem with NTL not supporting V.92 modem, but cannot find out.
Has anybody had any problems with V.92 & NTL?

I think it's NTL because I have the same modem and at first when I had BT Openworld, I could only manage 33.6Kbps and maybe 44Kbps if I was lucky. Now I'm with Freeserve, I connect at 44Kbps minimum and 49.2Kbps maximum. Soon I will be getting broadband with PlusNet and I won't have to worry at all.

1st 128K took 30784 ms = 4258 Bytes/sec = approx 35 kbits/sec
2nd 128K took 34550 ms = 3794 Bytes/sec = approx 32 kbits/sec
3rd 128K took 34119 ms = 3842 Bytes/sec = approx 32 kbits/sec
4th 128K took 33578 ms = 3904 Bytes/sec = approx 32 kbits/sec

Thanx for that 'jediknight007' I have made enquiries with NTL technical help, I'll see what they come up with (if anything!)

Just had a reply from NTL, they do not support v.92 modem.
Think I will go broadband shortly anyway.

Nildram is the best!
