I have seen the topic posted by edu1, and I think that this can be of help for more people, so I post it:
I have an old and reliable USR Courier External (US/Canada version; 20.16Mhz.) that I had upgraded until v.34+, but -stupid of me!- I missed the "official" upgrade to x2 and then, to v.90.
I was to give up all when I find this site --> http://www.freelsd.net/
There are an patched x2 firmware that NOT NEEDS KEY to enable x2!!!!
This firmware have some "pluses", according to their autor: several bugs corrected (I don't know if this is true) and the ability to change your modem zone (this is real, I have changed mine from "US/Canada" to "International". After that I'm been able to upgrade the modem to v.90 with the International firmware that I got from the spanish 3Com site!!!)
If you have an v.34+ Courier @20.16Mhz. (NOTE: the firmware is NOT for 25Mhz. Couriers ), this site deserves a look.
NOTE for edu1: Originally, my modem was "US/Canada" type. You don't say what thipe is yours (I don't know if the firmware in this site can be uploaded to an different type). Maybe anyone have some idea about...
