I recently purchased a Y530 Idea Pad and can only connect to the interned at 26400 bps. I have 2 other desktops
that are connected to the same phone line and they connect at 4100 plus bps.
Tried Microsoft support, and Lenovo support and can't seem to find any help.
Any help will be appreciated.

You could try "AT&F" at the advanced initialization screen for your modem.

Thanks for your reply,
The dialup connection is a landline which I just move from one pc to another. I don't have a need to use them all at on
all at once. The machine I'm sending this reply from is using the same line that I plug into the Y530 and I am currently
logged on to ATT Worldnet at 40,000bps. they have a window which shows your connection speed.
I have the same ISP for the Y530 with the same connection window which shows it connects at 26,400 bps.

Thanks for yor reply,
The ISP is ATT Worldnet and the connection to that service using the Y530 is 26,400bps. I just move the phone
connection from 1 pc to another. The other 2 machines connect to ATT using the same software and same
phone line as the Y530 and they connect at 40,000bps.
Thanks for your help.

RE: Advanced Initilization
In search box, type "Device Manager"
Click on "Device Manager"
Click on "+" to the left of "Modems"
Double-click on the modem.
Go to the Advanced tab.
Type "AT&F" in the "Extra Initialization commands"
Connect to your dial-up.
I have not utilized this in a very long time.
