I had problems when I bought a budget 56K Diamond modem. The connection would
slow down and slow down and finally grind to a halt.  And it wouldn't take very
long, either.
Diamond tried to
help but the software on the disc that I was supposed to use to test this and
test that just made me crash; the rest of their suggestions were beyond me.
I tried lots of things; nothing worked.  Finally I bought a Global Village, and

the problem went away, at least 95% of the time.  You get what you pay for.
Of course, if you already have a quality modem, then this isn't any help.  :  )
