Improve Your Dial-up Modem Performance



You can't assume that just because you connected at a speed like 48.3KBps that you will stay there. Today's modems automatically fall back to a lower speed if the line noise is too high to maintain a faster connection, but sometimes they fall back too soon or too far.

Here's how to do it:


Click Start the button.
Select Settings.
Click Control Panel.
Double-click on the Modems icon.
Select your modem.
Click the Properties button.
Click the Connections tab.
Click the Advanced button.
In the "Extra settings" field, type S36=7
Click OK to save your settings.


This will force your modem to try to stay connected at high speeds in two different ways before dropping back to an asynchronous mode with auto speed buffering.

2 ) With Windows 95 and 98, there is an easy way to increase the speed at which you connect to your ISP. To do this:


Click the Start button.
Select Settings.
Click Control Panel.
Double-click on the Modems icon.
Select your modem.
Click the Properties button.
Click the Connections tab.
Click the Advanced button.
In the "Extra settings" field, type S11=50
Click OK to save your settings.


3 ) If you are experiencing a lot of modem timeouts with your system, you can change the SLOWNET value in the Registry
  • Click Start the button.
    Select Run.
    Type "regedit".
    Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Class\Net\0000 (0001 etc).Change the SLOWNET value from 01 to 00.
If you suffer from random disconnections using your modem, you can improve reliability by using the following modem init strings.
Place the following values into your modem init string:

&U15&N15

This eliminates retrains

You might also try:

S10=30 or even S10=50

(all modems) as this gives protection against line drops due to short noise bursts or carrier interruptions

nice one thnx



Improve Your Dial-up Modem Performance



Ok i have a cabile modem (Motorola SB5100) ISP Iqara Broadband i get 60 to 65 Kbps can i get it more than that i there any way



Improve Your Dial-up Modem Performance


cool man this trick works.



Improve Your Dial-up Modem Performance


the test works for all modems.
Just check your s/n ratio
Also try to update your drivers.
And most importantly make sure the telephone line is ok to your house.

it didnt work....connected...disconnected...but didnt know where to type the AT commands...BTW how to enter all tose AT commands???

i'm frustrated, coz now sify connected at 19200bps, then got d/c in less than 40 seconds...then iot told me no dial tone, even tho i cud hear it......



Improve Your Dial-up Modem Performance


^^^ how do i check it??? i'm gettin terribly low speeds while my neighbours get better speed....i think my connection is faulty.....................

ok ok...got it...does it work with motorola modems also???



Improve Your Dial-up Modem Performance


here are the noises i am actually getting
Checked via hyper transport

<VERSION=10>
<CALL SETUP RESULT=Detected Data Answer Tone>
<MULTIMEDIA MODE=Data Only>
<DTE-DCE MODE=Async data>
<V.8 CM octet string="">
<V.8 JM octet string="C16513948">
<RX SIG POWER DB=22, TX SIG POWER DB=15, S/N RATIO DB=30>
<NORMALIZED MEAN SQUARED ERROR=39>
<NEAR ECHO LOSS=10>
<FAR ECHO LOSS=200>
<FAR ECHO DELAY=7>
<ROUND TRIP DELAY=7>
<V.34 INFO bit map =0>
<TX MOD=Unknown, TX SYMBOL RATE=3429, TX CARRIER FREQ=65535>
<RX MOD=Unknown, RX SYMBOL RATE=8000, RX CARRIER FREQ=65535>
<TX FIRST DATA RATE=26400, RX FIRST DATA RATE=40000>
<CARRIER LOSS=0, RATE RENEG=0>
<RETRAINS REQ=0, RETRAINS DET=0>
<TX FINAL RATE=26400, RX FINAL RATE=40000>

OK

That gives a s/n of 30db which is terrible... But i think that in afternoon i did this test and its actually about to rain so that may be the reason.

What are you guys getting.

General modem commands

Your modem manual should contain a list of all of the commands that your modem understands. These commands are also called Initialisation Strings. Check with your computer vendor for more advice on modem initialisation strings.

The following commands can be entered in capitals or in lowercase. More than one command can be combined to form a modem string (e.g. AT&F1M0X3).

AT&F - Resets the modem to the default factory settings.
AT&F1 -Resets the modem to the secondary default factory settings.
L0 - Sets the modem speaker to the lowest volume.
L1 - Sets the modem speaker to a low volume.
L2 - Sets the modem speaker to a high volume.
L3 - Sets the modem speaker to the highest volume.
M0 - Turns the modem speaker off completely.
M1 - Turns the modem speaker on.
S11=x where "x" = 50 to 255 - Sets the dialing speed of the modem (lower is faster).
W2 - Allows Windows to report your true connection speed.
X2 - The modem will check for a dial tone before it starts dialing.
X3 - The modem will not check for a dial tone before it starts dialing

S11=50 yep it makes ur modem dial the isp's no faster it has nothing to do with performance



Improve Your Dial-up Modem Performance


S11=50 does not increase the connection speed, but rather the speed at which it actually dials the number. "Connect to the ISP" is too vague a description.

hmm....this does not make any sense....

still cant figure out



Improve Your Dial-up Modem Performance


anyone with conexant softk56 (found in dlink 560is++), there's a simple tweak to increase ur download speeds. u can get upto .5 kbits/s speed boost eg. a jump from 5k to 5.5 k by setting flow control to XON/XOFF. setting can be changed in phone and modem properties in control panel.
note this dosnt apply for motorola sm56 (found in dlink 560is+)



Improve Your Dial-up Modem Performance


hmmm thats good info... lemme see

hey sunmysore...
that tip works for ll modems
Just try with hypertransport
Let it connect
wait 1 moin
disconnect
and then type AT#UG
you will get the data

shrek_incredible

Improve Your Dial-up Modem Performance


AT#UG wont work....it shows ERROR..its for connexant only........

aaargh...i'm gettin frustrated............nuthin's workin.......

u able to make sense frm the DIAG codes?? i've posted a link in the above post...see it....



Improve Your Dial-up Modem Performance


welll..........

that data is a bit confusing
If this is 10-14 keys
DIAG <2A4D3263 10=0 11=0 12=0 13=0>
DIAG <2A4D3263 14=0 15=0 16=0 17=0>
then your s/n is actually 0

The most probable s/n key is this:
DIAG <2A4D3263 40=1 41=80>

but thats coming to 80db which is impossible...so in short i am confused with that data

Try this then
http://www.utilitysoft.co.nz/ModemChk355.zip
i dunno if it supports moto though... But its small so you can try anyway.
Sorry can't help you much on moto though
here is a good site to try btw

DIAG <2A4D3263 57=13 59=0>
DIAG <2A4D3263 60=2>

OK

hmm...this shows:

Received signal power level 22dBm
Transmit signal power level 13dBm
Near echo loss 13dB
Estimated noise level 29 dBm

bad......

EDIT : the site sez for 29dB, i must get 26.4Kbps to 28.8Kbps.....i'm gettin 31.2Kbps......so its really line fault...hmm...havv to complain......
