of the modem went on without a hitch, especially since this
is the USB version, which you can install when the computer
is on. Windows should automatically detect the modem, and install
the drivers for you. Thank god for USB! I can't tell you how
many times I have plugged in ps/2 or serial devices whilst the
computer is on, only to either destroy the port or device itself.
Just remember, resist satronic (devil of computers) he will
tell you to just plug it in and take the easy way out, but you
must resist unless of coarse the device is USB!
is the diet version of the call waiting modem's long list of
port (Host or Hub)
time to speak on phone before disconnection: 7
(Data Transmission) Speeds: 115,200
Warranty: 5 Years
performance and speed are factors in which can make or break
a good modem. Now obviously this is a 56k modem, but not all
56k modems are alike some being speedier (no pun intended) then
others. The actiontec call waiting modem uses Lucent technology's
V.90 modem chipset as its brain. I used Bell Atlantic's ISP
as my test service provider, and Speedy
3D's dual OC-3 server o' love to test upload/download speeds.
I compared this with the Creative Labs modem blaster 56k PCI.
