    I'm not sure if i need a new modem or if there is some setting i can change that will speed my modem up. When i connect to the net on my computer, the best connection i can get is 19,200. When connecting with a different computer of the same speed on the same line, the connection rate is 26,400. Is there a setting i can change somewhere in Win98, or is my modem fried?

    GO TO (CONTROL PANEL) SELECT (MODEM) HIGHLIGHT YOUR MODEM AND SELECT (PROPERTIES) THEN CHECK YOUR CONECTION SPEED AND TRY PUTTING IT AT THE HIGHEST SETTING AND SEE IF THAT WORKS (IT HAS MADE A DIFFRENCE FOR ME IN THE PAST
