Faster Modem Dialing (Windows 9x)Waiting to long for your modem to dial? This tip lets you reduce the time it takes your modem to dial, and increase your overall modem connection speed.

Open Control Panel | Modems, select your modem and click on Properties. Select the Connection tab, and click on 'Advanced'.

In the text box that is labelled 'Extra Settings' at the following text (without the quotation marks) 'S11=40'.

The number specified after S11= (in this case 40) is the time for each tone in milliseconds. Lower numbers equals faster dialling. If your having problems connecting try increasing the number until it works.

Note: This may not work as planned in some countries and with some modems.

If you are not sure do not interfere with the register.

Disclaimer: Modifying the registry can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. We cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the incorrect use of the registry can be solved. Use the information provided at your own risk.
