DUN is reporting the DTE speed instead of the DCE speed. The former is
the speed of the COM port, the latter is the modem-to-modem speed.
You have two problems. The first is that your port speed should be set
to 115200bps to take advantage of data compression. The second is that
your modem has been installed with the wrong INF file.
When your modem connects, it informs DUN with a response such as
CONNECT 46666. If this response is not in the INF file, then DUN is
unable to interpret it, in which case it reverts to reporting the port
rate, which in your case is 57600bps.
A low port rate restricts the throughput for compressible data. For
example, a typical compression ratio for text data is 2:1, so if
you're connecting at 46666bps, say, then your data rate wants to go as
high as 93000bps. However you would need to increase your port speed
to 115200bps, otherwise your COM port would limit you to only
57600bps. You also need to reinstall your modem with the correct INF
file, otherwise DUN will now report a connect speed of 115200bps.
You can see the *real* connect speed in your modemlog:

My client bought one of these laptops second-hand, without any driver or
configuration CD. The machine has a modem socket, so I assume that there is
an internal modem. However, I am unable to get Windows 98 SE to recognise
the modem. The Compaq driver site makes a small number of drivers available;
the modem driver is not among them. The site www.driverguide.com is equally
silent on the subject.
Does anyone know where I can find a modem driver for this baby?A modem "socket" without a modem adapter = no modem. Have you checked the Compaq
support site for the manual/specs on the machine to find out what, if any, modem it

I did check various data sheets for this model. Some do

If you connect all the machines to the router and it handles the DHCP, all will have
access to the internet thru the same ISP account. All machines will show as the IP
assigned by the ISP on the WAN side and the router will assign each machine an IP on
the LAN side.
You can check the IP assigned each individual machine at a command prompt or in the
routers setup configuration.
To check the IP's set in the DHCP table of the router:
Start > Run, type in: http://192.168.0.1 and press Enter.
Type in the default Name/PW if you haven't changed or the one you changed it too.
Click Maintenance > DHCP Table.
To see it on the individual machines, at the Run box:
In 98 type: winipcfg and press Enter.
In XP type:

I am looking at a used computer for possible purchase and
was told it was "upgraded"... how do i look up the
processor SPEED on this computer through windows. It is
98SE and only shows the brand Pentium, not the speed.Restart the computer and press the F1 key before Windows starts... it should
be in the BIOS Settings, Under 'Advanced' - which will tell you the CPU
type, CPU speed, cache ram, installed o/s, etc.
... an OEM system with 98 SE and recently dual booted with Linux.
The existing dialup modem doesn't work with Linux so I ordered and have
received a new modem that will work with both OS's.
I intend to "remove" the existing modem via Control Panel and physically
remove the old modem before installing the new one.
This OEM system has a restore CD with a driver for the existing modem; said
driver is installed.
Since I have never 'removed' any hardware do I need to remove/disable/delete
the OEM driver as well?said
The simplest routine would be (assuming you find
a suitable modem with both Win98SE and Linux drivers):
1. Power off, remove old Win98 modem and insert new
2. Windows reboot ought then to recognize "New Hardware ...
Hi all, recently after I do formatting and reinstall back win98se I cant
detect my modem. Thinking that the present modem is faulty I bought another
And it still show cant detect the modem. I have checked all connections is all
connected. I have used the same modem for 3 years already but why now cant
detect. I believe if I install another new modem it will still not able to
detect the modem and I cant surf the net. i know the modem is in working
condition. Please advise what to do. Tks.Simple question but I have to ask to be sure: Did you install the drivers for it?
... have Win2000 dual boot
on this same computer. I installed it in 2000 too, and it dont work
for shit. It connects, but the data comes to me in spurts, where
there is no activity showing in the connection icon on the bottom. It
also keeps disconnecting from the internet.
This is the same computer, same modem, same cables and serial port,
and using the same drivers that came with the modem, and dialing the
same ISP. Why does it work WELL in W98 and work poorly in W2000? I
assume its settings, but what do I look for?Only thing I can think of is a packet driver. You mentioned bad flow of
data... But whether a packet driver is a standard (and maybe misconfigureed)
part of the modem driver, or the OS, I don't know.
Another thing (assuming this is a serial connection) is to look ...

I will dig in the card's setup script to see what return code it expects.
Maybe software and card do not exactly match: the card is new, the isdn kit

Control Panel> Modems, highlight your modem and click the Properties button.
On the General tab, move the "Speaker Volume" slider to OFF, and click OK
all the way out.
...glenOpen My Computer, double-click Dial-Up Networking, right-click your connection icon and click Properties from the menu that appears.
On the General tab, where it says "Connect Using <your modem name>", click the Configure button.
make sure the Speaker Volume slider is set to "Off" there also, and click OK all the way out.
If that still does not help, you will have to set a modem string, according to the type of modem you have.

I'm using a USR 56K external voice modem with Win98SE.
Win98 is supposed to be plug and play. It isn't in my situation.
I've been using the modem connected to the serial port, (COM2) for
Now I want to connect the modem using its USB connector instead.
No USB driver came with the modem, just Win 3.1 and Win 95 drivers.
Win98SE doesn't list this specific modem. How can I get it to work
Oh, when a list of ports comes up I get COM1, COM2, LPT1. How come I
don't see USB ports listed too? I have two USB ports.
Thank you. EricGo to the USR web site, and search for drivers and info for the particular model
that you have.
I've just installed Win98SE on a Compaq deskpro. I believe I've downloaded
the correct modem driver from the HP website for the internal modem and have
Although Control Panel, System says that it is working properly, when I try
and get More Info on it the modem can't be seen. Also, the port it is
assigned to use is always blank and won't take. Occasionally, the PC reboots
but I haven't been able to track down the reasons. When I look at the IRQs,
the modem is on Com2, IRQ3 and there doesn't seem to be any other device
using that interrupt.
Any suggestions ...thanks
Check in the BIOS that the modem is "Enabled". If it is
enabled then leave "without saving changes" and hopefully
