Generally speaking, such an option is not available because the
protocol between the modems automaticly selects the fastest,
reasonably error free speed that can be obtained from that line. All
this takes place in the background, and if the line proves to be too
noisey, a 'retrain' session may interrupt your download while the
modems re-negotiate a slower, less error prone speed. The speed
options you see on your side of the modem generally are confined to
the seriel port to modem linkage, and for a 57kilobaud connection
between the modems, it can be as high as 230kilobaud, but this is
only up and down the cable. The modems do the buffering there.
