Just got this from DABS this morning. Installed ok but speed shows as 28,800 bps on two different ISPs. can't get it higher tho' does seem to be quite fast. previous soft modem could show 40,000+ no problem.

Any views/thoughts please?

Thanks

this looks like a case of being wise after the event. Ging to let it ride for a while

You could send it back as not being fit for its purpose.

Best to get modems with a Rockwell (now owned by Coxanent) chipset, plus ensuring it's a proper hardware PCI type.

Only other thing is to ask whether your ISPs are V92 equipped?

My Diamond SupraExpress 56i V Pro has happily progressed from Windows98 and 98SE to XP with the aid of driver updates and never missed a beat in that time.

One supplier:

and another for the same modem as mine (drivers at click here - the model number for driver purposes of mine is SUP 2560)

You may even find Diamond modems sold under the SonicBlue logo as the company took over Diamond; later it became the turn of Best Data Products to acquire the brand.

I RTFM and uninstalled the thing and put it back in again. by default it selects COM4 but I changed that to COM3 and so far things seem to be hunkydory. I think the speed shown on the task bar shows little resemblence to the actual transfer rate so leaving it for the moment.

Thanks Stuart

But Windows should automtically assign ports, IRQs etc..:-)

If you go to:

click here

and click on the Speed button on the lefthand menu, a new page will open.

Scroll down to DUN and DTE speeds and follow the advice.
