The speed of a modem is determined by the number of kilobits or megabits per second it can transmit and receive.

Almost always in Kilobits or Megabits. Note, this is not Bytes.

Port speed is how fast the computer talks to the modem. Modem speed is how fast the modem talks across the phone line to the other modem.

The speed of a router is higher than that of a modem. However, the specifications of the modem do determine its speed.

The port speed setting for a modem, controls the speed that the computer communicates with its modem.
