Hey 24Kbps : My modem is a pctel hsp 56k v92 they were bought by conexant.the modem settings are simular but not exactly the same.I will give you the string I use & tell you what the settings do in my modem.If you will find your modem in your registry it should have a list of several but not all of the settings it accepts.This is my modem string

AT&FE0&CI&D2&K4&V1W3S0=0

ATS7=60S30=0M1N3%C3&K4B0N1x4

These are the extra settings:%N9;S91=15;S10=50

AT is attention

F is reset to default

E0 disables echo command

&C1 is dedicated carrier

&D2 IS DTR hangup&enter command code

&K4

24Kbs,

That means those strings don't work with your modem...I went through alot of modem strings before I found one that worked with mine that actually improved the "ping" of my ISP...you see I play online with my clan...so most of the tweaks I was really looking for was to improve that more than anything...

Did you look and try any of these at this site I gave you before? This is where I got mine...(no speed limit capping)

http://ucguides.savagehelp.com/ConnectionFAQ/ModemStrings.htm

I was also wondering if you had more than one access number to connect to your ISP...I found that one of the two I have works better than the other...(for lower Ping)

Hey 24Kbps: First here are a couple of drivers for your modem atleast the best I could find with the info on your modem.See if they are newer than yours.If they are correct & newer download & install one of them.They should put the correct modem string in the registry for your modem.

The first two lines in my modem string would have to go directly into the registry to work they would need to replace the ones you have there .They might not work on your modem.If you were putting them in the extra settings in modem you probably have a longer string than the modem can accept.Only the ones under extra settings might work correctly.The reason I put them in was to show you some string settings for my modem & what they were for in my modem.This is the kind of research you need to do for your modem to tweak it with a different string than the driver puts in the registry.Some of my settings probably will do the same thing in your modem if put in the right place.But start out with the newest driver you can find for your modem & see if it works better than the old driver.

hate to tell ya this 24k but no "tweaking", modem changes or even isp changes in most cases will help you, because its fair enough to assume the telco thats in your area uses the dreaded "pair-gain system" (im a victim of this too  :angry5: ) which will make you always connect at a max of 28.8k (like i am)

heres a definition of it:

pair-gain system: A transmission system that uses concentrators or multiplexers so that fewer wire pairs may be used than would otherwise be required to provide service to a given number of subscribers.

yes it quite is..i know this for a fact because my mom's house is like 6 miles away from here (dad's house) and there i can get a nice 54.2Kbps connection with a constant 6.1 download and this is with the same exact isp same dialup # too

and the even more suckier thing is that by law telcos have to give you atleast 28.8 minimum (sucks for me)

but with you and only able to connect at 24k or so you by law could call the telco or whatever it is you call and complain or request they take you off the pair gain circuit or whatever they gotta do

it could also be a result of bad wires and bad telephone lines somewhere for you but id place a bet on the pair-gain system doing it

Hi 24Kbps,

You've given us download test results, but I don't remember seeing anywhere what your connection speeds are.  Maybe you did and I don't remember.  What speed is your modem connecting at?  If you hold your mouse cursor over the DUN icon in the System Tray, the connection speed should be displayed.

Also, what values are you using for MTU and RWIN?

24Kbps:Go to this site & use their tcpip analyzer  https://www.speedguide.net/    it will tell you your current MTU &RWIN.

Did you find a newer driver or are you just trying modem strings in extra settings?I am not sure on XP but I know 98 & ME have a limit on the # of caracters you can use in modem settings.I think anything after that the modem just ignors.Or won't connect & gives an error message. Cholla

Try these settings:

MTU = 576

RWIN = 8576

MSS = 536  (This should be set automatically.  If not, set it to this.)

Everything else should be set to the default values.

I am also on dialup and those settings are working fairly well for me.  I don't know if they're the best, but they are the best I have tried so far.

Phil
