Rockwell modems

I use Enhanced CU-SeeMe quite often, but am having some trouble sending
video when I connect to other users. I can receive video pretty well, but
many people can't see me at all. Or it comes in very slowly and never quite
fills in.

I have a 28.8 rockwell type modem, 486/50 with 20MB RAM and a Quickcam.
Would it be best to use a standard US Robotics modem for better xmission? I
am willing to buy a better modem, is necessary.

Also, does anyone know what the proper initialization string is for these
modems? Perhaps the problem lies there.

As far as the transmission and reception levels: is there a proper level
that works best under many situations, or must you constantly change it to
suit your connection with another? I've had my xmission as high as 40 with
no real change, it seems.

If anyone has any pointers, I would appreciate it.
