|Forums | USR (Public) | 56K/X2 worth upgrading to v.90???||Watch|
|Posted - 4/18/2004 9:01:02 AM |
I wonder if anyone ever upgraded a USRobotics external
faxmodem 56K with X2 to
v.90 ? I looked over USR/3Com's websites,but they don't list any info on this.
[I slso read http://modemsite.com/56k/x2-replace.asp ]
Thank you for any help :)

I would suggest it is worthwhile - if you are on a line that can get 56k connections -
V.90 is much more reliable/robust than x2, and a diminishing number of ISP access #s support x2 at all.

Thank you for the help. Would you know of a
Flasher and SFF for this Sportster modem [ p/n 00178902]
I could not find any reference to it on the usr or 3comm
websites. Also, 3comm has pulled all their X2 links

Thanks for the help .
I am using this modem on WIN98 /XP amd it consistently connects at 33.6k. My ISP stopped X2 support awhile back,but
I just could not toss this nice modem. It is orignally for
Macs,but it worked just fine on Windows.
I checked the web for the modem wizard and appropriate
X2 to V.90 upgrade files and only found 'dead links' ,
but thanks for your help and time!!!

I have a x2 that often connects at a faster rate than my V90 and V92 modems. Good ISP, I guess.

Danceman - check the throughput with x2 vs throughput with V.90
While x2 may report higher rates, it often doesn't report "real" rates...!
