Your speed of 46.6kbps in very good for a modem as the maximum speed of any dial up modem is 56kbps, which is never obtained. There is a programme that people use for speeding up the download speeds called 'On Speed' but a yearly fee is charged, all this does is compress the files that are being downloaded to speed them up.

SOURCE: Dynamode Internal Fax Modem 56K

i had same problem trying to receive faxes until i changed phone connections.

according to a motorola manual (link below) this has something to do with being connected to a "proper analog phone line".

i had the phone line running from wall to a newer gateway (maybe 8 months) dec 07 to a maybe 2 year old compaq. kept getting that loop current error on the compaq when trying to receive a fax until i elimated the gateway connection and plugged the wall right into the compaq.

here's a link that might help: http://downloadmirror.intel.com/12655/ENG/Motorola.htm

see section 6, troubleshooting. hope this helps...

I have checked the telephone line, it is working alright and it is sure that I have plugged the line into IN port.

SOURCE: intalling GVC Anatel modem model#SF-1156I/R2F

Dell used this modem in their Dimension Desktops. If your modem has a sticker on it with D P/N 08F217, (Dell Part #) the driver for Windows 2000/XP may be one of these two files:

Try this first:
ftp://ftp.dell.com/comm/R58827.EXE

If that does not work, try this:
ftp://ftp.dell.com/comm/R47698.EXE

Another useful site:
http://download.modem-help.co.uk/mfcs-D/Dell/
Scroll down to the GVC modems. There are several different 1156I models, but I could not figure out how to tell which model I have using their Zinc, Graphite, Titanium, etc naming convention.

I doubt you will find a Windows Vista driver???

If your DSL modem does not have a phone port or if it has one but it's bigger it's not a phone port, it's called an Ethernet port. Most of the DSL modems/routers they have an Ethernet port. This is how it looks like click here. If this the port that you have on your modem, the cable that is also in the picture is what you should be using to get the laptop connected to the modem. The cable is called an Ethernet cable. And your laptop must also have this ethernet port.

If you have more question please let me know. Just reply to this post.

Made unsuccessful attempts to connect to the Internet using the dial-up modem. The internal modem came installed on my original PC and is a Smart Link 56k Modem. What do I do?


Can we have more information about the problem you have when attempting to connect ? The error code and message would me very useful in your case.

For example :
1. If it says the modem is already in use, go to "Network connections" or "Network and sharing center" and delete all existing dial-up connections, then create a new one based on the settings your internet provider gave you.

2. It might be a problem with the login and password. Write both in Notepad on the computer, then copy and paste the information in the required fields in the connection window.

3. It might also be a problem on the telephone line. Try another computer with dial-up modem known to work properly. If the problem repeats on that computer, the problem is on the telephone line. You will need to contact your provider to fix the problem.

Can this be used as a 56k router? I need to have a temporary internet connection and it is only a basic connection because of the type of phone there is at the house. We tried to connect but I don't have...


The SB4100 is a digital modem that uses cable TV network to provide broadband Internet access, it can't work with an analog telephone line, for this type of Internet access (also called switched Internet connection), you need an analog internal or external 56K modem, and also you'll need a user name and password (an account) from the Internet provider service (ISP) ; for a temporary Internet connection maybe a prepaid cellular modem (GPRS, EDGE, 3G or 4G) USB type could help you better.

I just put in a new 56k internal modem and its working but I can only connect at 33.1 kbps


It probably is not your modem at all. Usually its limited by the computer or ISP you are connecting to, If possible i would try changing the # that you are dialing into and see if you connect at a faster speed. One thing to check is to go to device manager and click on properties on the modem and make sure it is set to max 56K Hope this helps you.

My 2003 server sees the modem v.92 fax, but i can not seem to use it. I tryed to reset it, powered off and back on, reinitialized it but nothing seems to work.


A lightning strike to the phone line can kill the line interface while the computer interface is still ok. This would produce the symptoms you describe. If you can open the modem, look around the phone line connector for burnt components or burning on the board.

This might also stop the phone line from working when the modem is connected, ie another phone on the same line will produce no dial tone with themodem connected.

If this is the case a new modem will be the cheapest way out of this.

Do I need a 56K PCI Data Fax Modem for my new computer? If yes, why? If not, why? Thxs.


You only need a modem if you are going to be on a on a dail up internet connection or want to use your computer for faxing.

If you are using a broadband internet connection like cable or DSL, then the modem is not needed.

Hope this helps
