    Ihug shows a connection at 33600 bps.

    Part of the ident string is the old "x2" standard.

    I guess it's possible that this particular modem hasn't been flashed to
    the V.90 standard and is still working on the original x2 standard that
    was used by USR when they invented 56k. It's an ISA modem, so it isn't a
    Winmodem, and the flash date recorded is 10/6/97 (6 October 1997), Flash
    rev 4.5.1.

    I presume therefore that most ISPs require the V.90 standard to connect
    at more than 33600 bps.

    Is it still possible to flash these old modems to V.90?

    Upgrading is only possible with some modems + there used to be a charge.

    I bought a so called x2 modem only to find that I had to pay for a swap
    out as my one was not upgradable even though at the time it said it was.
    It was cheaper to buy a new dynalink than pay for the swap out/upgrade.
