Which Modem comes with which various Stock firmwares can be found out here:
http://devsrom4android.blogspot.co.uk/2011/10/samsung-galaxy-s2-firmware-updates-via.html


RECOMMENDED MODEMS TO TRY:

KH3
XXKI4
NELP2
NELP3
NELP4
XXLPX
DXLP9
DXLPA
BVLP7 (tested by many, deemed to be a fantastic modem)


DEFINITION:

*Modem/Radio/Baseband is all the same thing and can be seen by going to Settings - About Phone - Baseband. It's basically a driver which receives and sends Mobile Network signals as well as handling switching between GPRS, 3G, HSDPA etc....... (but not WiFi connection, that and switchover between Mobile Network and WiFi is handled by the kernel). Reasoning as to why Modem has no influence on WiFi can be found in this post by Entropy - http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=28052552&postcount=6556


USAGE:

*There is no one "Best" modem for everybody. Unfortunately you actually have to try to find the modem which works perfectly for you on performance, strength and battery drain levels. The good thing is that from my lengthy 8 month experience with Galaxy S2, I'm happy to report that there are a few modems that seem to perform well geographically for most users. These modems are KE7, KH3, KI3, KI4, KL1, LPS, NEKF2, NELP2 & NELP3.


COMPATIBILITY:

*Modems do not need to be matched up with firmware like it's done with ROMs and Kernels. For example, a KI4 modem can be used with a KL1 ROM and the other way round. The only thing you need to pay attention to is what model your SGS2 is. 9100 and 9100 modems are compatible across both models. However, 9100 model and US variants are not cross compatible since the devices are designed to work on different bands.


INSTALLATION:

*I will add a flashing guide to post number 5 soon, hence why it says "Work in progress.....". For the moment I suggest asking Mr. Google to do a search for you. Bottom line is, for CWM packaged modems you need to be rooted and have a working CWM recovery (flash the CWM modem zip within recovery). For .TAR packages, all you need to do is flash it while your device is in Download Mode and connected to ODIN. The .TAR file should be selected in the PHONE field. Don't touch anything else.


TESTING:

*Usually just flashing and then using the same modem for 3-5 days should tell you how well it performs in your are and with you Mobile Network operator. Please remember that it takes around 2-3 days for a Modem to "settle" and achieve optimum performance, so don't judge how good a Modem is straight after flashing. That's where a lot of people fail when asserting battery drain.

Signal strength and quality can be tested using this app:
Network Signal Info

Download and upload speeds on your network with a current Modem can be tested using this app:
Speedtest.net


RESULTS:

Testing done by 3ayachi (Tunisia)

Modems collected by others

This post is for compiling all modems added by others to this thread in one place. I will work backwards through the thread and get them all added to this post, giving credit to the original poster of course.

All modems are for the 9100 model unless otherwise specified.

Thanks for this pulser_g2!

Looking forward to see this updated maybe collect feedback from users regarding reception and power usage etc and from what area in the world. And if possible a short summery for them to after feedback.

What about CWM zip files?

The safest way I know of to flash a radio right now is via ODIN.

I've helped someone recover from a bad radio flash via ODIN, and we had no issues. CWM would have been useless. He had a soft-brick as a result of it. So no CWM access. So if you're flashing a radio, you should have PC access with ODIN in case something goes wrong.

If you get a soft-brick with the connect to PC icon, then you will need ODIN packages. So I encourage everyone to flash radios via ODIN, where you get md5 verification of the files (via the .tar.md5's I posted). If you flash via CWM you might not get that verification.

What difference do these make please?

What is the best?

And am I right in thinking these are flash via odin under the "phone" section?

Thanks in advance :)

You are right RE the phone part. You're not meant to just go flashing these because they are here, but a matching radio to your ROM is always a good idea :p

If your phone boots, and you have root access, you can always write the file directly to the modem partition (/dev/block/mmcblk0p8) using the dd command. When that's done, kill rild and you'll be using the new modem firmware.

Isn't enough the zip crc32 check? I've always flashed modem via cwm on sgs and I've tried a lot with no problem. On a corrupted file it won't flash
BTW its not too complicated but sometime frustrating when you can't get a PC and you realize the modem just flashed is not working
