Linksys combo card modem is lower than my external modem

Hello all as mentioned before on this list I have a one of those nifty
Linksys EtherFast combo card without the dongles and such. The thing is
lately my connection to my ISP has sucked. I noticed that when I try to use
the modem on the card it always does the connection handshake twice and it
responds as (I did this under minicom using the ATDT command):

CONNECT 115200 V42bis

consequently connecting at a really crappy speed. My U.S Robotics external
modem connect as follows:


and gives me a much better connection. Does anyone know if I can get the
pcmcia modem to connect at a better speed? I realize that there are several
other factors such as line quality, protocol X2 or K56Flex or V.90, but I am
pretty sure that before this modem worked like a charm. BTW, my ISP is ExecPC
(voyager.net now) and I'd just like to say that their dialup access is really
starting to suck majorly so steer clear of them if your looking for a dialup
connection. Oh, well guess I'll have to use the school's T3 for now :) .
