internet connection speed,same modem,different ind

  Oldster1 15:21 18 Oct 2003

using a Xoltrix 56k modem, correct software installed, the indicated Internet connection speed on the taskbar is 28.8. My computer also detects it as a standard 56k modem, and shows apparently identical diagnostics in Control panel,Modems. If I select standard modem as the modem of choice (on the same com. port) for Internet connection, the indicated taskbar speed is 56k. Which is correct and believable? Or am I missing something?

Ignore the speeds on the taskbar- they cannot really be relied upon. The best indicator of spped is to do a speed test online.

Try click here and go to the internet connection checker... this will test upload and download bandwidth...
