I have another problem with this modem, maybe someone can help me. I
have two USRs: 14,400 and 56K. Both are standard ISA devices, nothing
tricky. My PPP setup works great for 14,400 and I can dial-in with
minicom, no problem. Both modems are in factory default settings, and
according to the manual these seems to be the same.
Now I set up 56K one for the same IRQ and port, plug it in and try to
connect (say, with minicom). I can connect successfully, answer login:
and password: for the dial-up host, connect to my computer in office,
enter its login: and password:, get prompt, but as soon as a command I
enter produce more than couple lines of output, everything hangs
up. Modem keeps whistling (if I ask to keep speaker on after
connection), but data does not come through. It happens only in ARQ
mode, but without ARQ I have too much noise to work anyway. Of course
PPP connection does not come up at all.
It happens on all connection speeds, including 14,400 (which works
fine with other modem) and below.
Any ideas/suggestions? Do you think I've got a defective 56K modem? Is
its ARQ algorithm different from the old one and it breaks on noisy
line? (well, it is not even that noisy, with 14,400 I could have a
pretty decent connection).
So I returned back to 14,400 speed and waiting for any suggestions
what can I try with 56K one next.
Thanks in advance for any help,
