Software cannot change the physics of the telephone cable pair. Read the plain English explanation at my site below. And the port speed is the speed between the modem and the processor. It has no effect on connect speed. Set it to the max, 12,500, and leave it. You're SOL until you upgrade to DSL or cable.
There are 10 types of people who understand binary; those that do and those that don't.

I am on Dial-UP with an internal modem. I don't know how to tell you how slow or fast it runs -- I just know that when I've checked it using internet sites that test the on-line speed it always comes up "very slow."
Just today I used the microsoft diagnostic tool which recommended I change Maximum Port Speed to 9600. I did that -- not much has changed.
I've been looking around for some software options to boost the speed and found webROCKET and Zilla Internet Connection 220.127.116.11.
Any ideas or recommendations (other than to go to DSL).
