There are alot of gimmicks out there for increasing speed, but most deal with cache or MTU. Nothing will force the modem to connect faster than capable, factoring all the variables - modem, pc, line, ISP. If you're line is ok, try another # at ISP. Richard's site has valuable info on testing your modem with other ISP's.

All modems connect differently; 56k isn't an exact science. Friend kept buying modems trying to get past 33, despite my telling him otherwise. Using my "encouragement" he switched ISP's and now gets 49.
