    This might be set on your phone line rather than in the modem. Thus you may need to dial a prefix code to disable it temporarily.

    BTW aren't the 'budget' DSL connections cheaper than dial up these days?

    Like already stated, it sounds like the modem is V92 compatable and you need to enter an initialization string before it dials out to disable the V92 aspect.
    Once you know the full make and model of the modem - just google the modem name with initialization string and you should get the hit.
