|Forums | USR | Tried 3 USR modems, same problem - link naks||Watch|

I've tried the USR Performance Pro, took that back, got an USR ISA modem (accidentaly) but tried it anyway and then took that back and got a USR External (005686-03). All 3 of these modems are giving me the same problem, based on the diagnostic screens it seems to be link naks. Blers, retrains and speed shifting only become a problem at higher speeds ~49k (it won't connect any higher that this, but sometimes will end at 50k with a 52k v90 peak speed). Lower speeds don't have the blers or retrains, but still have the link naks. And I don't have these problems with non-USR modems (Actiontec call waiting, Diamond Supraexpress).
Keep in mind I've tried all of these things:
Also, there is only one ISP I can use, and they only have one local number, I'm not sure what their hardware is but it is based on K56Flex/V90. And it looks like I'll probably be stuck with a USR modem of some type, I can't find any non-USR hardware modems around here.
I'm probably going to try bringing this Ext modem to a friends to test it out at some point, just haven't got around to it.
So, what is a link nak, and what can I do about it.

"Link Naks: Negative acknowledgments (one or more blocks) - the remote modem didn't acknowledge receipt of your data. Zero is a good number here"
So my ISP's modem isn't getting all my data, what can I do about it?

Normal to have some with USR modem; you may never eliminate 100% of them; other chipsets do not use Link NAKs in diagnostics; concentrate on throughput -
lower connect speed may result in better throughput.
