Hello,

I'm successfully using my 6700 as a modem with my laptop, bluetooth and USB, but I'm disappointed about the speed with my USB connection. I'm in a Verizon Wireless Broadband area and I'm only getting speeds upto 230.4 Kbps. I've heard of some running between 500 and 900 Kbps in this area, any suggestions as to what I can do?

What I've tried already:

-While connected to the internet I change the maximum speed in properties to 921600 instead of 230400 and click ok. I then disconnect and reconnect, still at 230.4 Kbps.

-I also, while connected, went into devise manager and tried the same thing under the modems, but the maxium speed allowed through there is 230400. I think this is my problem.

Is there anything I can do to get the faster connection? I know the port will run faster because the active sync function runs at 10Mbps.

Thank you,

That doesn't sound right. I was getting 1.6mbps the other day over USB. What do you get using Bluetooth? USB is faster, Bluetooth only allows a max of about 700kbps.

One thing you could try is to download 2 files simultaneously just to see if the speed cranks up. The network should allocate a higher speed.

I haven't changed anything on mine, just using the default settings.

The USB speed is limited by the serial driver. While the air connection can be faster, in reality you will probably be limited to 921600bps if you change the configuration accordingly. The 230400bps limit is the default for serial connections. You have to change this in the Modem configuration (control panel), not only on the device manager.

In any case, EV-DO will probably max at 700Kbps depending on location, so that should suit for now.
