...I don't think anybody has implemented a 1/5 PCI divider for the 166 MHz bus speed. With the BX chipset, mobo makers were able to do a 1/4 divider for 133 MHz, so I don't think it is dictated by the chipset. However, the chipset does dictate that the AGP speed is 1/2 the bus, so you are at 41.5 MHz PCI and 83 MHz AGP.

I've run a GeForce256 at 112 MHz AGP, but my Radeon is on a KT133 board, so I haven't tried it over 72 MHz AGP. Back in the days of the Intel TX chipset I ran 83 MHz bus, and my PCI cards did OK at 41.5 MHz PCI. It does sound like your modem is choking at that speed, though. Do you have an external modem you can use?
