according to the t-mobile installation instructions i used, i set up the 8700g as a 19900 standard modem, but i did change the max speed in properties to 115000. any other ideas to try?
O, your saying that the speed you are connecting to the network is the number that pops up when it says "connected at X speed" after the modem connects? If so, I believe that speed is the connection between the modem and the computer, and not actually the speed of your connection. At least, I think that is what I have read here.
