I have the same problem too. I bought one too and
i still can't connect to my internet provider.

I don't know why I'm so unlucky, I thot that
USR was a reputable brand. I cannot take it
back to the distributor bec they will pretend
that they don't know anything...





1. US Robotics Sportster Voice external 33.6 faxmodem bps problem

I am new to this stuff so please bear with me.  I have just purchased a
US Robotics Sportster Voice external 33.6 faxmodem.  I bought it because
my Infotel modem went bad and PCMag gave the USR modem a good rating.  
After I installed the US Robotics my port and connect BPS went down to
28800 or less on Netscape and AOL.

At least with the Infortel, according to Netscape, I had a port and
connect BPS of 115200 and a connect of 57600 on AOL.  I think I made
some changes in some .ini files.  Unfortunately I have CRS (Can't
Remember S**t) so I don't remember how I did it.

I have W3.1 and W95.  How can I boost my bps back to 115200?  I am poor
but poverty-stricken so buying any new expensive ($100+) hardware to
solve the problem is not in the cards right now.

I would appreciate any help you could give.

Thank you all,

Doug Russell
