    Also remember just because it says its connected @ that speed it doesn't always mean he is actually connected at that speed, meaning he will NOT download at that speed because it is not possible.

    He may only get 33.6kbs out of his connection and has used a couple settings to make it appear as if it has connected at that speed. The max real connection from a 56k modem is 56,000bps - and it is rarely that you will actually connect at that speed.

    federal regulation is 53,000 bps so they can still trace you anything faster than that on a modem I think is untraceable.

    also I heard one of my friends talking about a crystal you could use to make it go faster than the federal regulation...I don't know I think I'm wrong about that

    Your friend might also have dual isdn service
