Yes, V92 is better than V90.

V92 is the latest standard which has a few benefits over V90. :smokin:

But, not alot of provider's use v.92 yet. So unless your ISP does, you will be using v.90 and seeing no speed increase. Most small ISP's will use v.92 first. The reason being, larger ISP's have quite a bit more modems to flash or replace. It's a larger process.

Yes, v.92 is better in theory over v.90. But like FA-MAS correctly stated, there is extremely limited support for it currently.

My AOpen FM56-PM modem has a Conexant HCF chipset, and is v.92 compatible, but no Australian ISP that I know of offers v.92 support yet. I am with Australia's second largest ISP (OptusNet) and the only thing they have done recently is remove K56Flex support from their modem banks. Surprise, surprise - my modem log says "CONNECT 49333 - PROTOCOL V.90"

FA-MAS, do you know if v.92 is backward compatible with v.90? For instance, if an ISP implements v.92, will their modem racks have to support dual protocols? Because there are a lot of v.90 only modems around, and it would piss a lot of users off if they could only connect at 33,600bps after their ISP performed a v.92 upgrade.

I believe that v.92 is backwards compatible as the primary advantages of v.92 are in connection time (time it takes to dial and make the initial connection) and upload speed.

So theoretically it wouldn't be much different than using a 33.6 modem with a v.90 ISP. It would work, just unable to take advantage of the full features of the connection.

Or I could be wrong:?:

I would say the modems that support v.92 are backwards compatible in a way. Being that if it cannot establish a connection @ v.92 the modems "know" to go onto the next protocol. In this case v.90, and it could go to v.34 and lower. Also, there's gonna be no way that v.90 is gonna be made unavailable. They would leave that and just add v.92. Where I work most of our modem racks do support multiple protocols. v.34, X2, K56, V.90, ISDN1 and ISDN2.

That would be really messed up if they removed v.90 and everyone that had a v.90 modem was forced to upgrade or connect @ v.34.

Albinus and Mr. C, you're both right with the 33.6 analogy.
