I'm trying to find a good combination of hardware for dial-up access to a Windows 2K terminal server. Currently I'm using external USR Sportster 5686-03 modems upgraded to V.92 at each end and can only connect at 26.4K. I'm able to connect to my ISP on either phoneline at 50K so I would think the line quality would be good. I would appreciate any recommendations on what hardware to use to achieve fast dial-up connections to a Lan or Server. What do the ISP's use for hardware?

Thank You.

In order to connect at anything above V.34, one of the modems must be a digital server modem which needs a digital phone line (ISDN).

ISPs typically use equipment that connects to 1.544mbps or higher digital lines ($$$$) supporting at least 24 simultaenous inbound calls.

Virtual Private Networking via broadband connections (cable or DSL) is a better way to do what you want assuming the service is available at both locations.

Aloha! Richard.

Hi Mike - I do a similar thing. I have a USR Sportster 5686-03 modems upgraded to V.92 on an NT 4.0 Remote Access Server and an Agere Win Modem on my Dell Laptop.

Until today, I connected reliably at 28,800 computer to computer, 56K Dell to ISP and 45.3K NT to ISP, frustrating. Today I updated the drivers on the Dell to version 8.3 and can now connect computer to computer at 33 or 31.2, hmmm not much better.

I was going to order the LT Win modem on this site, but I see it is not currently available.
