V92 Modem - Cannot get beyond 31.2 kbps

  FCD 14:57 25 Sep 2004

I have a Ham Ambient modem on Win XP home with SP1. After recently reloading Win XP and still using the latest drivers that I can find [Version 4.47.2] I can now only connect at 31.2 kbps.

I have confirmed that my telephone line is ok - by connecting a laptop which gave me speeds between 45 and 51.

Grateful for any help on how I might be able to regain the improved V92 speed.

If you go to your modem manufacturer's website or, alternatively, click here , you should be able to find the latest driver for your modem.

You should also recheck the modem's configuration such as port speed (115,000 is a good start) and that Country is set to UK - some modems default to US.

You don't say which ISP you use. While using dialup with Aol, I had a selection of numbers I could choose.

At least one, never went beyond 33 while after an exchange "turn-up" at least one would regularly connect at 44 - 49. I admit I never saw 50 or better!
