[clug] Silly modem question

It sounds like they're not training correctly.  Your chat script may already
contain a factory settings restore (at&f), to eliminate manually set
modulation/speed options.  If it does and still no joy, you might need to
force modulation/error correction/speed settings to get it to behave,
V34/MNP5/24000 isn't a bad start.  The AT commands vary for each brand.

Any chance the line is on a PGS/NiRim/Rim/PABX?  If it was your broadband
line, not likely.  I had a problem with the Xircom PC card in my laptop over
the weekend, dialled into Ozemail (Syd) ok, but speed was lousy.  As
Winblows was fine I'm looking at the driver.
