i got the same exact modem and similiar problems. when i use the modem update
wizard it updated like yours but it also updates every time i call in. i have
two other usr modems and when the code is recent it says " no update needed".
but every time i use it it updates and reinstalls the same update.
i use three v90 isp(work and friends) and i get 45,333 on all connects. my
wife's usr upstairs gets 49,333 and 50,666 on occasion.
did you try uninstalling the modem and reinstalling the original drivers??
i haven't done this yet but i will try. i'll let you know. i'm not sure if the
updater actually flashes the modem. if it does the uninstalling won't work.
keep me posted on your trials with 3com. i'll be watching these post to see
if anyone else has this problem also,
