View Full Version : Slow internet connection

13-08-2002, 11:51 PM
I just tried out an Intel ham modem but had problems with it so went back to my old Lucent win modem. I used to be able to connect at 52000 bps every time, but now whenever I try to connect my modem makes "handshake" noises twice and will only connect at 31200 bps. Same modem and drivers as before, and I know it's not my line or ISP.

Any ideas??

Right click on My Computer on your desktop and choose properties.

Click on the modem(s) shown in Device Manager

Remove both and reboot.

Windows should detect the correct one and reinstall the proper drivers.

You could also check your modem properties and make sure maximum connection speed is set to max.
