ok, i dont have all the info on this but here is what i saw and was amazed by, i recently helped a friend who was moveing off to collage fix his old computer up for word processing and internet resurch and had installed a modem, the origonal one i couldnt find drivers for and forgot to take it out when i put the second in, the second was a pctel modem, when the computer booted up and i connected to the net it got some where around 110 kps and 120 kps (tried this a few different times) i was stumped, i looked in the back and took the old modem out and it droped down to about 49.9 kps, curiouse i put it back and it went back to 119.9 kps, i was wondering what exactly caused this, it seemed to actually work faster but was hard to tell since the computer was a pentium 2 266 with 128 ram and kinda slow to begin with, my friend is gone now and ive been trying to recreate this effect on my own computer but with out luck, both modems im useing are pctel, so maybe its windows only seeing one of them. has any one else gotten any thing like this? was it atually faster or just a fluke?

The modem reporting the port speed - not the actual connection speed - which is caused by improper modem installation or a 'bad' .inf file.
