is this the reported line speed, or the speed you can achieve?
You say "at the moment" - does this mean it has changed?

Do you need "extended reach", i.e. are you far from the exchange,
or did you just give it a go?

Most of the reverse engineered info that went into the driver was
done long ago on now out-of-date modems. Maybe the thing to do is
to start with a recent modem and do a careful analysis of what
windows does (I already planned to do this for modem initialization,
but haven't found time yet).
