This is a new modem its not in their products its under support external data modem they cover drivers for it and new information and also they mention v.44 on selected models. They show a picture of it in the left top corner its black and looks like 5686D and it says v.92 on it. Duane from MI. Here's a little post I could not located under their products in external modems.

Thanks for the tip!

Normally, USR will change the last part of the modem (D to E in this case, previously 01-02-03, etc.) when they change the modem in some way; usually the 4 digits (5686) and country determine what firmware can be run in the modem.

It's unclear to me what has changed between 5686D to E (the color?) - the .inf file listed for the modem does not include any V44 responses.

Aloha! Richard.

honestly, what expectations of change do we have of US Robotics? They probably just took the modems sent for repairs, painted it black, and stuck a new sticker on it
