i bought a 5610-01 modem a couple of weeks ago it intalled it into com 5. thats okay but when i download something the transfer rate starts high like at 20 but then goes down to like 3 or 4 k/s. when i use system monitor it says that im at 5k per sec. my question is that is windows limiting the rate because the baud rate for com5 is 9600 which i still dont know where to change if i can or is just that the numbers are wrong.Also when im online it has pauses in the connection then about 5 sec later it starts up again. this is really annoying when playing counter strike online.. any help will be grateful thx

Sounds normal.
Browser throughput reports on downloads are not accurate - especially near the beginning as your system has pre-loaded & cached part of the file.

If your port were only 9600 you would get a throughput of under 1K/B s. A PCI modem doesn't use a real com port so the baud rate setting for port speed is irrelevant.

Pauses in games: speedshifts/retrains -

You can eliminate them by slowing down your connection or disabling 56k
