    I have been using my Hayes Accura External modem for at least a year on 2000 and getting great connection speeds but since using XP I getting some connection speeds as low as 2.4kb..! Now that is slow..! I have done all the normal things, ports, MTU, and even went to Microsoft..!

    Please help me...! Its driving me mental..!

    I'm having the same problems in windows2000 on a clients computer.

    It was fine however before i did the update of Bios.

    Its a win or lose situation

    If i want ACPI compliance... i update Bios.
    If i want Modem complience... i downgrade Bios
    Upgrade=acpi but no modem speed
    Downgrade=No acpi but modem speed.

    I've just downgraded and reinstalling the lot.

    I dunno if this could be the same problem as yours.
    The motherboard its having a prob on is a Gigabyte GA-5AX ALI Chipset.
