My guess is that the init string is flunky. I have never got anything
less than the modems limit out of my modems, 14.4 out of the 14.4 28.8
out of the 28.8 33.6 out of the 33.6 and 44 out of the 56 (this has to
do with the modem banks at the ISP being set to 44kbs to ensure
minimum dropouts...on the recomendations of the comms carrier).
