Why should I set my COM port?

Question

Why does my fast modem connect at a slower speed and why should I set my COM port at 38.4k or higher if my modem is only 28.8k? This is what one tech told me to do. First thing is how do I do this and where do I find all this. I don't want to do anything that will make my modom even slower or have it not work. Can you please help.
