I have been running XP for about a month or two now. I didnt have too many dramas with compatibility although my ESS Superlink-M DATA FAX Modem (internal) is causing me problems.
I dial up to my ISP and damn, it says speed 33.6k. I disconnect and dial up again, still 33.6k. I try again and again, sitting through that annoying sound until FINALLY i get a 50.6k connection speed. I have installed the latest drivers but this still happens. I read up somewhere about entering in a custom "String" for initializing the modem in a certain way? Can someone PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE! show me the light! My phone bill is beast and I cant afford cable :(

What were you connection speeds before you upgrade?!? The connection speed of the modem is only one part of it... It can have anything to do with rain to Being close to an airport...

When i had Win98, i connected everytime at 50.6k. I takes me about 2-5 retries at connecting to get a 50.6k with XP. When it does connect at 50.6k it takes lesser time to dialup than when it connects at 33.6k.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
