Question about Agere FM56 / 56k -V. 92 (Lucent) PCI Soft Modem I-305 (Retail) NO VOICE (I306)
I am looking for a new ISP for my dialup internet and the site l found says that a V.92 modem will increase my inernet speed.
My computer is a 2004 HP A420N with Windows XP. I have a Agere Win Modem driver version 188.8.131.52.
I am computer illiterate so bear with me.
1. Will the V.92 really help to speed things up?
2. Can l download a free update from the internet or do l have to buy a new modem?
You have a v.92 modem even if it lists as v 90 just run a windows update,, look for hardware updates, , if none comes up for the modem you should be good .
the last update was to 8.30 for v92. .. v90 etc. . it wont make that much of a difference in speed. .. however
A phone line filter WILL make an amazing difference, having worked for a dial up isp before , trust me , they help alot. .. its worth 12-22 dollars from any radio shack or maybe even walmart.. . i've seen them in home depot as well but don't spend more than 25 dollars. .
"phone line filter" look for it on radio shacks website
the picture is accurate.. not sure of the description, that thing is not for two lines.. its a a single male end --- to --- female end filter no bigger than a permanent marker. .
good luck. . oh.. it should increase performance from say 34k to 48/56k orn your modem. .
good luck. . its the next best thing to having new lines put in... to your house.
or usb broadband from cricket.
