what you caould be seeing is simpley a matter of reporting.
The older modem simply be reporting the desired connection speed - not
the actual speed.
1a - you have to TEST this - down load (or upload) a multi megabyte file
56k connection should stablize its trandfer speed in the range of 4.2 -
5.2K (Kbytes)/sec, while a 28.k connection will be in the range of 2 - 3
2 - why on that machine as you using a modem??
