This may be way off the mark here but before I got broadband I had/have
a Supra express memory modem that had worked flawless for about 4 years
here and all of a sudden one day it would not connect at anything
higher than 28k, there was nothing done to the modem it was connected
to a server that fed my lan, the server had not been touched for weeks.
I tried everything I could think of, connected direct to various
machines and o/s`s all with the same result, turned off then on, reset
to factory defaults, added/subtracted init strings, tried about
everything to correct it with no good result and came to the conclusion
( after about a week of trying ) that it was borked.
Replaced it with another modem and forgot about it but a couple of weeks
later I found it again and thought at least I could use it just for the
answer-machine and fax use all of a sudden it was working again at 56k,
maybe it just wanted a longer rest with no power and completely
Might or might not help but just a thought.
