I'd like to: a) find out if any Linux drivers are being developed for
the USR 128K ISDN adapter . . or: b) advocate their development.
Having called USR (now 3COM) . . I was told that the card is not
supported under Linux.
ISDN met my expectation for performance while browsing/downloading and
this card worked marvelously in the past under NT . . and I'd like the
capability to use it again should I have to move to an area where
Cable isn't available.
ISDN is typically expensive and sold as a 'metered' service (I had a
60/30 plan with Bell Atlantic - 60hrs of 1B or 30hrs of 2B for
(unlimited 3Mbps for US$42.95/month).
A desireable feature of the driver would be 'connect on demand' where
the adapter would be connected following a request out past the
gateway, and then drop the line after a 2-3 min period of inactivity.
This is feasible since ISDN is synchronous digital and typically
brings up the connection in 1-2 seconds.
Any thoughts/comments on this subject??
