I've just bought a new modem, PhonicPro V.92/V.90 PCI, anyone know if they're any good?
Strange thing happens as well,I always look at the modem staus icon when i'm online and it always displayed that i was connected at 115300bps, but my new modem displays connected at 45333bps, i disconnected & reconnected to discover that it connected at 46666bps, WHY???

The lower figure will be the true one.

The connection speed will vary slightly from time to time, but 45k to 46k sounds reasonable for a 56k modem.

Why did my original modem always show 115,300? Its an old ISA slot card, don't which make it is though.
