    that speed does not look to be terribly bad...
    even if you could get it up to 56k you'd prob not notice the difference.

    you may have better results with a "hardware" rather than a "win" modem
    however

    This isn't a initializing command , it should be ATZ

    You can enter Hyperterm and input ATZ
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q124890/

    See if it works better, if so you might need to have it run every time
    you start your modem, in that case add ATZ to the startup
    initialization http://xtra.co.nz/help/0,,6226-954508,00.html

    -ATZ resets a modem; AT just gets it's ATtention

    Damn right - I wish I could get modems in my area to *ever* connect that
    fast. Mom's never goes over 28.8 and often is as low as 16.2, and at work 19
    or so is typical.

    Yeah - we have exceptionally crappy phone lines in this area. They were put
    in during WWII for a small military base. I don't think much has ever been
    replaced.

    One suggestion (only a suggestion, not a command...lol)

    Purchase a HARDWARE MODEM.

    Most purchased computers come with cheap $5, unreliable software modems...

    Some examples of software modems:

    -Lucent winmodem
    -USR win modem
    -Conexant
    -Davicom
    -Aopen HSP

    If the modem name has an HSP ending (host signal processing) or mentions
    "win modem"
    it generally means that it is a software modem.

    see detailed explanations here:

    http://www.56k.com/reports/winmodem.shtml

    http://www.cit.cornell.edu/helpdesk/win/modem/mddiff.html


    Cheers,

    BTW: removing long R11 extension cords and/or R11 splitters you may also,
    somewhat improve the connection speed...

    the connection was none too good
