Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

SET YOUR MODEM'S MAX SPEED



  • Double click the Modem icon in the control panel. The 'Modem Options' window appears. Two tabs should appear, 'General' and 'Diagnostics'. Select the 'General' tab, then select 'Properties'. which opens and has a 'Maximum Speed' box about half way down.
  • Open the box and select 115,200, then 'OK'.
If you have a 56kb/s modem this setting won't hurt it, but a setting of 9600 could slow it down.
