How to Disable v.90

In some cases, disabling the V.90 functionality for your modem will improve your connection. To disable v.90, you will need to enter an initialization string specific to your modem.

Note: Disabling v.90 will lower your connection speed to a maximum of 33.6 Kbps. While this speed is slower, it will provide a more stable connection versus an unstable connection at faster speeds.
