I have a Global Villge Teleport Platinum 28.8 modem(Model A812) that I use on my desktop 7200/90. I thought I’d also use it on my newly purchased (but old) Duo 280c (without an internal modem). I don’t have a dock for my Duo, so it just has a serial port.
Now the problem: The serial cable for the GV Teleport doesn’t fit into the serial port of the Duo. This modem only has a single cable (no power cable) and presumably gets its power through the port. The number of prongs is the same (8), but on the side with the 3 prongs there a a metal piece that prevents it from attaching. This is different than a standard serail cable.
Is there any adapter I can use? Is there another GV modem that I can buy that doesn’t have this kind of cable? I like the fact that the GV modems are so compact.
Thanks for help in advance.
