Can somebody tell me which driver should i use for my modem for a better connection speed.
I went to this site (http://www.modem-help.freeserve.co.uk/chips/conacf21.html) for the modem drivers as mentioned in some other thread but couldn't get them to work. Currently i use the standard 33 kbps modem provided by WinME. Can somebody tell me the location where i can get a better driver.
Thanks. But do these modems use the Rockwell HCF 56k chipset. From the ATI(responses 3 and 6) i could find out that the modem is the one mentioned in the link in my earlier message.
I just want to be doubly sure because in the web page you mentioned it says:
It is VITAL that you know that your modem is a Rockwell HCF 56k Modem before you install this driver, as you could damage your modem by installing the wrong driver.
Please let me know if installing this driver is ok.
I find the Rockwell Drivers perform much less reliable on WindowsME then did the 'Standard 56k Modem v.90' drivers that come with WindowsME. The speeds seem are quite a bit slower and the time to connect speed is much longer. I understand that this driver doesn't exist in 95/98, but I would try several things out before settling for those rockwell drivers...
the driver does work for me on my webplayer using Win98 (i'm modeming in right now using that driver). i haven't gotten any speed faster than 48k or so, but i expect that for these type of modems. if you keep looking and find another driver that works, then post your info here. i couldn't find the right Conexant RC56D2 Serial PnP Driver (my windows system properties says that is what it is right now), but as far as i know conexant took over the rockwell modems. it's the same situation i've found with the emachines that i've used when i had to change their modem drivers where the emachine installation factory defaults were giving me 28k speeds. when i did my own search for the conexant driver (beginning my search for info using the AT commands to see what they say), my search lead me on the trail that eventually resulted in my using the rockwell driver. good luck with whatever you do.
