Need modem suggeston



I'm presently running an Intel(R)536EP V.92 modem on a K7VTA3 Mother Board. I'm having some SMTP problems and they keep pointing to the modem. It cost me 26 bucks so I'm not worried about replacing it. What I need is some advice on just what modem to buy? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Oh, yes, I'm running the Windows XP Pro OS

I dont think it matters much. Dial up modems all pretty much do the same thing. I used to use a U.S. Robotics modem then I switched to a creative modem. They both connected at 49 to 52k
everytime but that has more to do with your location to a trunk line than it does with the modem. The creative worked fine with xp and every once in a while it would connect at 115.7k. Downloads would jump from 5 to 11k but like I said it did this very rarely.


Thanks for the info Ditchhopper. I had a US Roboics with my last build and I'm going back to them . Their modems are good. I inhereted this Intel from the clone shop that put my present system together. Not sure if it's causing all my SMTP problems. think there's some duplex/simplex bottlenecks or something going on.
Just not sure.

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
