Default What the heck is a v.9x modem?

I'm looking at getting internet call waiting software that will alert me when someone is trying to call when I'm online. It requires a v.92 modem. Mine says it's a "Conexant D480 MDC V.9x modem." What the heck is the deal with the "x"? Aren't dial-ups either v.92 or v.90?

x is for the 2 or 0.


My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.

Yea, i also have dial up, and x means it can be set to either or, or performs both, v.92 is backwards compatable with all other v.xxs. All modems anywhere after 2001 are v.92, so i doubt yours isnt.
