FYI, making a copy for someone else without express permission from 3Com
would not be legal.

Quote:>Contact 3Com/USR Support for a downgrade disk.

I contacted 3COM/USR and after finally making it to a level II technician, he told me that they only provide downgrade disks for
modems which have been flashed from 33.6 to 56K in order to flash the modem back to 33.6.  According to this technician, they do not
provide files to revert back to the previous v.90 code for this particular modem.

I am aware of the legal implications that go along with distributing modem firmware. I am not myself providing the files but providing
links to where they can be obtained from.

Hi all.  Just wanted to relay this experience to you.

I have an internal USR 5687-00 modem at home that I flashed up to ver. 5.0 (11/5/98) and immediately noticed a drop in my initial
connect speed to 38,666 and throughput of 4.1-4.2 KB/s. My modem on my other computer got fried and I just replaced it with a USR
5687-03 (which has jumpers, thank goodness, like the 5687-00) and this has a code ver. 10.1.19 (2/18/99).  With this new modem using
the same phone line and ISP I now get an initial connect of 45,333 and a throughput of 4.9-5.0 KB/s.  I am now quite happy again.

My question is: Has anyone figured out how to flash the 5687-00 back to the previous v.90 code? Alternatively, does anyone know if
and when USR/3COM is going to release an update to flash the 5687-00 to the same specs as the 5687-03?  TIA for any help!

They have done that in the past, and I suspect they will again if (1) you
have a good case and (2) you are persistent.

This is bullshit. You should not have to be persistent. I have seen to much
of this shit from 3COM. Just call them and tell them to shove there modem up
there ass sideways and tell them to send the downgrade disk, NOW!!!!

So, if the bank won't give you a loan you feel you deserve and qualify for
then it's ok to rob the bank?

Why is it that some people think they are more important than anyone else on
the planet?

And if they don't, you will do what, exactly?  Throw a tantrum?
Buy a Zoom?  Search out some lawyer to see if any of your "rights"
