    Slow modem or connection

    I'm using a cheap PCI modem that's Newcom/PCTel. It's supposed to be 56k V90 capable. Sometimes I can log on with no problems and get pretty good speeds while loading web pages. Other times...the modem indicators on my taskbar flash on and off, and the connection becomes unresponsive. It wont even load my ISP's home page. Also, if a page does load, it's very slow. Is there some kind of extra setting that I can use to fix this problem of the connection being unresponsive? Thanks.

    I found an Init string at PCTel's website that seemed to have worked.
