V.92 Modem & Features
V.92 modems are the latest in Modem technology - they have several improved features over the V.90 modems. One of the nice features of V.92 modems is something called Modem on Hold. This feature lets you answer incoming calls without disconnecting from the Internet. You can even make a call and remain connected. You must have Call Waiting to use this service. If you do not already have a V.92 modem, some modems can be upgraded to V.92 with a driver download from your modem manufacturer's support page on their website.

V.92 modems will get you online faster because they negotiate server connections faster. With a V.92 modem, the "handshake" noise you hear when you dial in is often significantly decreased. Connect times are 30 percent to 40 percent faster with V.92 than with V.90. Also V.92 modems send data quicker.

Sometimes V.90 modems can be upgraded via modem software that you can download from your modem manufacturer's website. Some v.90 modems cannot be upgraded to v.92 using software.
