Need help with Modem "extra settings" -- modem is slow now

I have a Zoom 56K PCI Fax modem and I use dial-up. There was a problem with my provider, but their crappy customer service didn't know it, so they had me change some settings on my modem to help "solve" the problem. I then learned later that day that service was just down in my area. However, now that it's back up -- and now that I changed my settings, my modem is only connecting at 33600 instead of the normal 52000 it was doing before.

I changed all my settings back except for this one:

Modems Properties-->Properties-->Advanced-->Extra settings

...originally in there I had a bunch of capital letters, & sympbols, and numbers. They had me delete all that and put in instead this: AT+MS=v34

I am guessing this is why I'm connecting so slow now. Anyone know what I would have had originally in there or what I can change this to in order to get back to connecting at 52000?

Also, of there are any other settings I should check to help with connection spead, please let me know.

Thanks for the help!
