I think it may depend on the ISP rather than the modem. When I was using JUNO, it kicked me off any time I went more than a few minutes without some 'activity'. I found a partial solution by clicking on an internet site like MSNBC or NPR which broadcast news or music. This fooled the JUNO timer into thinking I was browsing when I was actually just reading my Email. If the sound got annoying, I just muted it. It wasn't perfect. but it extended the time between disconnects. ---911

Dino9001:

If you're using a Lucent Win modem, the most current modem driver for it(8.30) is located here. I used it in the Lucent Win modem in my HP Pavilion 8160 with no problem. It'll overwrite and install over the older version during the install process. Install it at your own risk.

If you want to do some serious tweaking of your 56K dial-up connection, click the link below and read the article on 56K tweaks and fixes.

Regardless of how much tweaking you do, and as long as you have good phone line quality in your neighborhood, don't expect much more than a 44,000 - 48,000 bps connection speed.

Sometimes, one local access number will give you a better connection speed than another local access number. If your ISP has more than one local access number, try them out.
