View Full Version : registry settings - modem dialspeed part II

13-06-2001, 10:39 AM
From someones advice on this forum (thanx Peter C), I have found that I am unable to save the 'extra settings' string under the advanced dial options for my modem (I want to save S11=30 or thereabouts).

This means that the command is never sent to the modem, so it dials only at the standard, slow speed.

I was told that:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\system\currentcontrolset\servic es\class\modem\0000 in a sub key called UserInit should be what ever is entered in 'extra setting'

However, my machine does not have this subkey or anything similar, nearby.

Does anyone have any ideas on how I can make the 'extra setting' entry stick so it is actually SENT to the modem when I dial?

I know my modem supports faster dialing - it worked well until I went from Win95-98se.

I checked the registry key that Peter Cox gave you on the previous posting, on my Win98 SE OS, and UserInit is there. Try opening the /0000 'folder' by clicking on it, you should see the UserInit value in the right hand window. I tried also entering a value under modem extra settings and it appeared ok in the Registry.
So I am at a loss to know why your system doesn't accept a value, it should do so.

Goto:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\system\currentcontrolset\s ervices\class\modem\0000
right click on the RH window, and right click,select new, select string value, name it, UserInt,(Watch CAPITAL letters), and put in S11=30(+ or -, depending on how fast you feel, and what your line will handle)

Thanks Peter.

I put in the string as you said, and I KNOW it's in the right place, cos now I can change the value in either the dialog box or the registry, and the change is updated in the other.

But it STILL dials slow.
And it has the indecency to accept the command as seen in the log file!
Is my modem stuffed now?
It USED to dial fast.
Here is the log:

Sorry to take so much room, but it would have been an ugly post without the double <cr>.
Do you have any ideas from the log what is going on, or am I just being pesky?

Hi again TU, seems to me you might have driver problems try this link and read all about Lucent Win Modems and the various drivers that are available. Heed the warnings about backing up inf files and registry before over writing driver or inf files!

Thanks heaps for your help both Peter P and Peter C.

I still haven't got the problem solved, but will look at the MS knowledge base and site on Lucent modem drivers.

If no luck there, well, I guess I'll have to put up with a slow-dialing modem. I could get a 'better' modem, but I like mine because it is VERY reliable. I can be halfway through a largeish (20mb) download, when one of my flatmates picks up the phone - the connection is never lost and the download is never corrupted. :)

Thanks again guys, and good luck out there.
