I was screwing around on my computer, trying to increase my dialup connection speed. I experimented and came up with this, which gives me a huge dialup speed...

Okaly...i tweaked my modem settings...here's how...
1. Go to Phone and modem options in the control panel
2. click the "Modems" tab
3. click your modem and then the "Properties" tab
4. Click the "Advanced" tab
5. Yay! Now for the good part. Where it says "Extra Initialization commands:" you type in "AT&FX" (hopefully without the quotes...)
6. Disconnect your dialup connection. Then dial in again.

HERE'S THE RESULT

normally my connection is 26.4 kbps. This is what your new speed will be:
(it varies on your maximum port speed)

with my port speed at 115200, i got it to dial in at a whopping 921.6 kbps.

is there ANYTHING i can do to make this ungodly dialup bandwidth of any use to me? or can the phone line simply not handle it? I would LOVE to be able to harness this (looks to be) awesome dialup speed! PLEASE help....i need this! i can't get dsl...lol.

short answer..... nope. all other obstacles being excluded, when you dial up you need to connect and sync with another modem at the other end (where youre dialing in to).

It's just a method to make the modem "think" (and therefore report) that it's connected at whatever max speed is specified in MODEM PROPERTIES ==>GENERAL ==> CONFIGURE ==> MAXIMUM SPEED.

Basically over-riding whatever the max speed was it negotiated with your dial up ISP, which it would normally post (such as 50,666)

It is not the actual connection speed, again...it's just a setting override which makes it report a false value.

Try to run some downloads...you'll see you're still traveling at dial up speed.
