I'm beginning to suspect from my problems that it
isn't, salesperson's claims to the contrary.
Phone Tools, I discover, reconfigures itself according
to which modem type you claim to have, leaving the
voice and answering machine capabilities hidden
unless you specifically claim to have a voice modem.
Just hand it the USR when you install Phone Tools,
and it shows only fax and data panels. Claim to have
a voice modem in the configure subprogram and it will
open the voice panel, but then you just get a scream
if the answering machine tries to answer a voice call.

So is or isn't the 5686D a voice modem (I haven't
had any luck trying to get this from the USR site).

And if it isn't, what is? Thanks for any help._

I looked at the built in specs today on one I am trying to get to work. No mention of voice.
try the I4 to I9 at commands to see what it says.

Finally got the word from two authorative sources that
it _isn't_ a voice modem, so it's gone back with an
internal, definitively voice, substitute on order. I
was hoping to use my vacant serial port for this job,
but USR's only external serial voice modem seems to be
the no-longer-available 5605.
