The original communications driver that came with windows does not allow
for high speed serial port use. This is due to non-idenification of the 
FIFO and poor time sharing of the processor. The original commdrv will not
let you run your modem at 28.8. Things to do to fix things:

   1) Add COM1FIFO=1 to the [386Enh] section of the window's system.ini file

   2) Replace commdrv with a better driver. I suggest cyberdrv.zip. You do
      this by changing the commdrv=commdrv line in your system.ini file to
      something else, like commdrv=cybercom.drv for instance. CyberCom is free
      and can be found around the internet. There are other ones avaliable, 
      like the one included with winfax.
