Depending on your modem model, there's probably an AT command which will
give this information. For my USR Courier, it's ATI6. My older modem was a
Cardinal internal which IIRC used a Rockwell chipset, and used the command
If I reset the Courier (ATZ), it will forget the speed. To get around this
you can either use cu from the uucp package, or modify the modem init string
in minicom from ATZ to ATI6Z.
