Does Modem make a difference?

I was curious, in the world of 56k modems, is there a real performance difference between brands? I ask because I recently got a new system and my log on time is a lot slower than my older system and also it just seems sluggish in comparison. I have dwnloaded the most current drivers and it's about the same. So, should I consider another brand or could it just be that my ISP is getting too big for their breeches? My current modem is Motorola SM56. Any suggestions? luces

  1. Chipsets and modem brands and type do make a difference. A crappy winmodem will perform very poorly compared to an expensive 3com hardware modem.
