Assuming you are talking about a true modem (for a telephone line) a 56K modem, at best, you will get 40k to 45k down. (Limited by the telephone lines bandwith) Up is slower, I don't remember what the upload max is, it's been to many years since I've used a modem.

For clarification, a DSL modem or a Cable modem arn't true modems. A telephone modem gets it's name because it is a modulator/demodulator. It converts a digital signal to analog and vise versa. A DSL or Cable modem are completely digital so they really arn't modulating or demodulating the signal. They are the DSL or Cable equivelent of a telephone modem so they are commonly called a modem.

Smile Re: Modem speed help

Thank you.

I do need help with one thing.
I am runing win xp pro and when I o to Start Shutdown the screen that comes up says
Shutdown....Turn Off......Stand By.....Restart

If I hold the Shit Key down the Stabd By Tab will change to Hibernate.

And in Power Managament I have everything set for Hibernate.

But if I let go of the Shift Key it turns back to the Stand By Tab???????

Why and can I get Hibernate Tab to just stay there??

...because that's just the way it works? I've never personally found it an issue and as far as I know there's no way to change it unless you want to get rid of the welcome screen and get the "classic" log on / shut down dialog.

From memory you can still just hit "h" to hibernate quickly from within the shutdown dialog without clicking on anything.

I'm pretty sure you can as long as hibernate is enabled - try it and see (I would but I haven't got a windows machine to hand at the moment.)
