|Forums | USR | Line Test for 56k Capability||Watch|

3Com used to have a bulletin board at 1 847 262-6000 that would allow one to check the capability of the telephone line to see if it is capable of 56K. I think that is no longer in service as I continually get a busy signal. Can anyone verify that it is no longer useable? Better yet, can anyone provide an alternate method of checking line speed capability. I rarely get greater than 22K throughput with my 56K 3Com PCMCIA card in the laptop or Rockwell 5K modem in my desktop. Yet if I take the laptop elsewhere I can connect and run in the 45-53K range. Any suggestions?

test line" is junk and always was. It told me years ago I wasn't on a qualified line. I've been connecting up to 50 and laughing ever since.
Seems you've already found your answer, if modem works well on other lines. Your line is probably impaired.

The line test uses aty11 results from the remote modem;
If you have a 3Com/USR modem, you can do a more reliable line test with aty11 -
As for the line test - USR's web site indicates they are "working on it".
