you can also get a 56K modem to connect at 115,200. it really freaked me out when i went to check my e-mail and the thing said "Connected at 115,200". just go into control panel/modems, click on properties and change the Maximum speed to 115,200. according to windows, this is just the speed windows uses to communicate with the modem, but apparently the modem can connect at 115,200... hmm... i can't do anything with the registry right now because registry editor keeps crashing (blue screen of death...) if i had source code i might be able to fix the stupid thing (that's one of the many reasons why i'm getting linux on my computer...)
