I've posted a message a while back on modem problems on my home computer.
After replacing a fried PCtel modem that supplied internet access and
drivers and settings continually, uninstalling the network components and
them I still can't seem to get back to the consistent speed that I used to
The new Zoom V-92 modem hooks up at 115.2 kbps all the time and runs like a
champ for the first few pages loaded. Then for some strange reason it bogs
down and sets with now activity for several seconds and runs erratically
after that. It will communicate then go dormant alternately for long
periods. If I disconnect and start over, it runs great at first again and
then falls into the same pattern. Sometimes it helps to hit the IE reload
button on the stalled page, but not always. This same pattern shows up in
other web reliant software used. It does this no matter what driver or
initialization string I use on the modem. An ISP tech suggested an
initialization string that would slow down the modem to "allow things to
sync up better". When that was tried, the same pattern prevailed, but when
it was pulling data it was at the slower 48 kbps rate. There have been no
changes in my phone line or system and the phone company has checked the
line and found no noise. Has anyone ever seen
anything like this?
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
