Xp installs Adsl Pci Modem as 64k isdn dial up

I have a Dynamode PCI modem (from plus net) after a clean install on XP this always defaults as a 64k Isdn dial up connection.

I am using the ppoa drivers but there is an installation option to install a 'bridge' driver but I am unsure with this.

Will this affect my ul/dl speeds? Is there a workaround?

Any help much appreciated

thats how windows see's it from the drivers, but check your modems info popup and you will see its connected at 288/576 or 256/512 if it doesnt include the overheads

ADSL is also called a 'dial up' in windows although
I don't know about the 64k bit.
What speeds are you currently getting
when you take Plusnets speedtest or ADSLguide speedtest ?

I'm on 1mb and getting 966 on my last speed test.

I was just concerned I had not used the correct driver option.

PPoe
PPoa
Bridge

I know that ppoe is not UK standard so went with ppoa....bit confused when it came up as isdn dial up though? any ideas on the bridge driver?

no idea why your getting the bridge option as the PC with the PCI modem already is asigned the public IP. Its really for routers with problems running applications in NAT mode so the PC has to have its own software firewall as its got no protection from the router.

It could stand for an old encapsulation type
'Bridged IP over ATM' where no dial up type account
is required eg. no username or password necessary,
this does'nt apply in UK ADSL, the PPPOA option is correct
one.
