Open Phone and Modem Options in Control Panel

On the Modems tab, click the modem you want to configure, and then click Properties

On the Modem tab, in the Maximum Port Speed list, click the speed for the modem


To open Phone and Modem Options, click Start, click Control Panel, click Printers and Other Hardware, and then click Phone and Modem Options

This value is usually set correctly when the modem is installed

This speed represents the maximum speed that programs are allowed to transmit data to the modem, and is normally faster than the modem speed For example, this is usually set to 57,600 bps for a 33.6 Kbps (V.34) modem

Changing this setting also sets the current speed for the modem To set a different value for the current speed, click Related Topics for the procedure to change the data connection preferences

*make sure all modem software is installed
