I just bought a Courier 2806 external modem, and it works great for gaming compared to my old modem(pinging less than 150 consistently for CS/Tribes using AOL), but my web page and d/l speeds are pathetic. I tried to disable some stuff in the AT to make it better, but I've never used Hyperterminal or anything like it before, and probably screwed with a bunch of stuff I shouldn't have. Is there any way I can set it back to defualts(would uninstalling work?), and what should I do to improve the web and d/l stuff. I am only downloading at 2.5k, compared to 5k with my old modem, though I can d/l up to 3 files at at a time with each of them staying at 2.5k on the Courier, which isn't that bad. Also, can anyone explain how to use the AT stuff. I am probably going to d/l any firmware/drivers I can first, and then thought about disableing error control and compression. Is this going to help? Thanks.

Disabling error control is not a good idea;
Compression - depends upon your other network settings - but generally will not make a difference in stability of connection.
You can always reset modem to factory defaults with
Note the Courier does have dip switches - clearly labelled on the bottom of the modem - that can override AT commands.
The best way to tell what's going on is with post-call diagnostics.
