I have a Banksia Wave SP56 modem (BD4064P) the latest firmware upgrade for the modem from the netcomm site (Netcomm now owns Banksia).
I decided to get the latest firmware as i thought my modem would connect at a higher speed, it was connecting at
42,667bps, which is pretty ordinary for a 56k modem.
I installed the new firmware and flashed the modem and all but now instead of the bps increasing it has gone down to 33.6bps "Not Happy Jan". :mad: :mad:
Anyone got this modem that may be able to help me as to why it has gone slower. Also there seems to be no setting anywhere that i can see that can alter the modem speed. Seems it's behaving as a 33.6 modem now. :dead: :dead:
Thanks in advanced.

also, the 56k number is only a theoretical number. the modem is physically capable of that speed, but in reality you can't expect any more than 46-48 kbps.
i've got a generic lucent win modem with xp, it's speed is at 46.6 or 36 usually, and i can't really notice the difference and i use it a lot. the only time things run slow is usually because the server on the other end(bigpond) is getting a fair amount of use.
don't worry about the speed, you're not getting ripped off or anything.
about the firmware, what operating system are you running? with the later models, eg xp, 2000 maybe me, the o/s will know what sort of modem it is, and will do it automatically, you won't need the software of the netcomm site, or so i'm led to believe from past experiences.
