x2 LineTest

LineTest is the easy way to confirm that your phone lines
support U.S. Robotics' exciting new x2 Technology for
high-speed Internet downloads.

Our tests have shown that the vast majority of phone lines
in North America support x2. If you're concerned about your
ability to make high-speed connections, follow the simple
instructions below.

What You Need

LineTest has only two requirements:

- Any manufacturer's V.34 modem, installed and connected to
a phone line
- Any terminal application (such as Win95's HyperTerminal,
QuickLink II,RapidComm or MacComCenter)

Dialing Into LineTest

First, open a "terminal window" in your communications
software. For detailed instructions, consult your software's
documentation.

Dial this number:

1-888-877-9248

Most communications programs offer the ability to dial from
a "phone book." Alternately, you may send the following
command to your modem:

ATDT1-888-877-9248

You'll be connected to the LineTest system, and asked if
your system supports graphics. Press the 'Enter' key to
proceed. You'll then be prompted for your name. Type in:

Line Test

The LineTest system will perform a series of diagnostics on
your connection, and will inform you of its conclusion.

This Connection Supports x2!

************************************************************

Congratulations - you're in good company. Get ready to step
up to high-speed downloads from the Internet!

To find an x2 retailer near you, check the U.S. Robotics
website at http://www.usr.com.
************************************************************

If x2 Isn't Supported...

Since line conditions can change from call to call, we
recommend that you make several calls to LineTest to ensure
an accurate diagnosis. If you have multiple phone lines
available for use, we recommend that you try calling from
each line.

If multiple calls indicate that your line won't support x2,
keep in mind that telephone network configurations can
change, so your chances of making high-speed connections
may improve over time.

*******************Important Note**********************
We've taken great care to ensure that LineTest reports
accurate results. However, due to the complexity of the
diagnostics LineTest performs, we can't guarantee 100%
accuracy. We'll improve and enhance LineTest as your
feedback rolls in.

As an owner of a Sportster Vi 33.6 with problems to be resolved, I
called the BBS line for a line test.  Spending my dime for the long
distance call, to be rewarded with 751 Kb file containing a bunch of
letters and garbage, kind of irritated me.  Seeing this 888 number gave
me hope, but alas, I was not considered a registered owner, to be able
to use it to test my line.  I would at least like an answer to the email
to the support staff at USR.                     Thanks,     Mike

        Yup, it's the same as the US number mentioned below (or at
least that number works from here in Ottawa)

Quote:>>>Dial this number:

ps. were the 100 or so lines of text that you quoted REALLY required
for your one line response?!

All,

Due to the overwhelming response to the availability of our
Line Test, we are in the process of adding additional phone
lines.  You may currently experience a busy signal ormessage
stating that your call did not go through.  This is a
temporary situation, and we are working to remedy it as
quickly as possible.  

You may also dial our BBS at (847) 982-5092 and follow the
directions I listed in the last post.

Thank you for your patience and sorry for the inconvenience.

I am a registered owner and it gave me the same stupid message when I
called.  It even found my name in it's database of registered users
before telling me I wasn't one.

I called the toll free line and after connecting and logging in (and the
system recognized me and knew my name from PREVIOUS calls) it said
something like "Unregistered users not allowed" and hung up on me.
Great test of X2 capability!!!

How did you log on?  Did you use your full name, perchance?  If so,
then it's not surprising the BBS dumped you.  You need to log on
using "x2" as your first name and "test" as your last name.  Then it
works.  Trust me.  I've done it a couple of times for different
modems from different locations.
