I have just purchase a HP computer with LT Winmodem . DEspite loading new and latest drivers etc I can only connect at 28,800 to my isp . I have tried other isp's as well spoken to HP at length and to no avail. any suggestions.
It sounds like you're not running Linux. So my first suggestion is: don't send non-linux questions to the Linux Gazette Answer Guy.
If you're getting 28.8 then be happy. Speed claims beyond that are dubious and likely to occur only under optimal conditions, rarely and briefly. If you really need faster access you'll have to look at alternative technologies (ISDN, cable modem, leased line, DSL, etc).
