My isp, the only in my town, has change your equipment to lucent k56flex but not v.90, and my modem is v1456vqe-x (askey corp and j.mark corp) with x2 tech, texas chipset under 3com license.
Is there any way to maintain a decent connection (28.8 or 33.6).
Disabling x2 o v.90??
Before always i connected at 33.6

Different server modems will affect your rate;
In many cases, a 3Com/USR server modem will provide the best connect rates; however, throughput is what really matters
and, depending upon the type of data, you may get better throughput (and lower lag/latency) with a [slower] Lucent server modem.

If your ISP is K56 Flex ONLY, and you have an X2/V.90 modem, there's no hope of negotiating anything better than a V.34 connection.

Disabling both X2 and V.90 is certainly worth a try, but the modem is probably doing that automatically anyway during the handshake negotiation when you connect.

If nothing else works, you may be faced with getting a different modem that matches the ISP.
