Call ZOOM's technical support line. 1-617-423-1076 9-5 EST
Tell them that you want the newest EEPROM chip for your 24.0. Be sure to have
your serial # handy, so they can identify which chip you need. Besides the
long distance call, it's a free upgrade. They'll also send it to you for free.
Since my friend has yet to recieve his chip, (just requested them yesterday)
I can't give you the number on this chip. Just give ZOOM and they'll handle

I have heard alot of people say that the ZOOM 28.8 chips are all socketed,
meaning that all the chips can be taken out. That is not the case with the
ZOOM 24.0, only the Rockwell chip and the EEPROM chip are socketed. So a
trade-in is inevitable...that is if ZOOM has one. Even though some people are
bragging about the upgradeability of some modems, I'd still want one made
specifically for the v.34 standard. It's very posible that the v.34 standard
may be better utilized by adding certain chips not available to fit on the
present 28.8 modems. So I'm all for an available trade in, even though this is
my friend's modem. I wouldn't be surprised at all if the trade-in is around
$100, a matter of fact I consider that to be pretty reasonable. (Even though
ZOOM ripped you/my friend off by making the 24.0 available.)
I had the ZOOM 24.0 in my computer and was very unhappy with it. It connected
fine to 24.0>28.0, but when it sat idly on some 14.4 it would just hang up for
no reason at all. On some boards I couldn't conect at all.
Alot of people have been giving *to ZOOM for their crappy 24.0,28.8
v.fc modems. Hopefully they will get there act straight with their new 28.8
v.fast modems this summer. I own a 14.4 ZOOM and believe it to be flawless and
perfect. :) I have had no problems with it whatsover. But since I am a heavy
modem user, and because of ZOOM v.fc problems, I plan to upgrade to the ZyXEL
modems when the v.34 is standard. I know they are more expensive, but I'm
looking for the best. I don't care for the USR. :)
What problems/triumphs have you had with the ZOOM 24.0 modem?
