    Modem Expert Needed?????????

    i have a V.90 56k modem.. i just did a fresh install of win 98se and NT4 dual boot.

    my modem is a softmodem
    my problem is when i try to visit a website or hit a link the modem takes along time to get a response from the site. sometimes it will time out. it never did this before. i use 2 isp's and have the same problem on both

    i have newest drivers for modem and i tweaked the com ports and set the buffers to max on modem and com ports. it is set up with all the same settings as it was on my old install of win 98se.

    what could be the problem.
    also when i DL a file i dont get a very steady DL stream the modem lights blink and loss the connection and then regain it..WTF

    ohh yea when i do get it to connect to a site i get peaks of 14.5K DL speeds using system monitor and some times steady at 5.1k so when it works it seems to be not bad for a dial up

    i dont think so but it might be...well i used it one morn. it was fine then i setup my dual boot and the problem started the same day..

    i checked every thing it is set up the same as it was before. i know these setting like the back of my hand..

    maybe ill reinstall the drivers. i dont want to buy another because in like 3 weeks DSL will be here. cable is not an option it wont be here for another year.

    helllo there.Maybe this wil help you out.
    1.Try to download the latest drivers or update the firmware.
    2.v90 or kflex is the same thing.You ping someone with 33.600 and you receive at 56.000
    Try to ad atx3 command at advanced properties on the modem device.
    3.MAYBE THE SLOT THAT THE MODEM IS INSTALL IS BEING USED BY ANOTHER DEVICE;
