I've been reading the posts regarding noise problems with the 5610A/B and other USR modems, and got my explanation. I have the 5610B and never realized the modem had problems with noise after I tried connecting without the $20 filter from Radio Shack (which I already had been using with my previous modem - a Aztech 3880-W(U) Conexant HCF). Seems that the 5610B picks up AM sports radio where I live.

The 5610 Performance Pro has a bad silicon DAA design - instead of a phone line transformer and mechancical relay, it's all electronic, and it just wasn't designed properly.
It's also much for likely to completely fail.
