My connection to my ISP continues to be down in the 20k class. I would like to get 40+k connections but can only do so maybe 1 time a month. My ISP says I should check to see if I have the latest Bios/flash rom but I am not sure how to tell. Is there a reliable way to tell? Is this the "Spiral Death Syndrome" I have heard about with USR modems? It seems to get slower and slower all the time. I wonder if Kflex is better. Any help would be appreciated.

For USR modems, go to appropriate link at

With low or sub-20k rate:
check for a/d conversions
and disable 56k if you have more than 1

Check your phone wiring
