You're connecting at 36 but probably progressing upwards during the session. Prove it after a 10-15 minute call. Disconnect, use hyperterminal and type ati6. Highest speed should be shown. I connect sometimes at 38 but often reach to 50, with mid-40's being norm.

Well if this is happening, why not force your modem to connect at 50K or whatever to start? You know your line can handle it and it saves time with retraining.

Time? I actually had to slow my modems down to a max of 46 - too many errors if any higher. Besides, forcing a connect at ONLY a certain speed (unless it's v.34 or slightly higher, results in too many redials (TIME).

I am not very familiar with 3COM modems specifically. On LTs forcing a rate won't cause it to redial, it will CONNECT at whatever speed you set it at and give you a million errors.

It would be helpful to see results of
at i6, i11, y11 after a connection of at least 30 minutes.
