    Default G5 internal modem problems

    Just fired up my new dual processor G5. Its internal modem (K56Flex and
    v.92 re manual) connects at only 28800. My old PowerTower Pro 225 always
    connects at 52000. I have the correct modem chosen (Apple Internal Modem
    v.92). My ISP supports the modem specs of K56Flex and v.92)

    I then re-plug the phone line back into my old US Robotics v.90 modem
    and connect at 52000. Never faster than 28800 with the g5.

    My Network, and TCP/IP are configured exactly as on the old computer.
    Spoke to Apple. Recommended formatting the HD and starting over. Seems
    radical on a new computer right out of the box.

    Any known problems with the internal modems? Sorry for cross posting;
    this is the first time that I have done so. But I am desperate.

    Thanks,

    Sonny Taylor

    1 - how do you know that the conection speeds are really different??
    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
    K(Kbytes)/sec

    2 - why on that machine as you using a modem??

    Good points.

    The "connect speed" is about half. Whatever that means.
    Multiple speed tests on BroadbandReports.com and Bandwidthplace.com do
    correspond repeatedly with the "connect speed" reported.
    It is subjectively much slower.
    I will do some downloading today.
    I have a modem because I am too far from out CO for DSL, and our condo
    Board is still trying to figure out wiring the building for digital
    (cable & TV). So I have had to use a "52000" dial-up for the time being.

    Thanks,

    Sonny
