I have 33,600 Rockwell Modem and can't seem to connect to a USRobotics modem.
This is the first time I have a problem with my modem.
Is there something I can do?

Describe in a little more detail what happens when you dial into the USR modem.
Do they handshake and then disconnect?

Are you connecting to a colleague's modem,
an ISP's analogue modem, or an ISP's digital-modem server ?

Hmmm, not alot to go on here...
Do you connect and then the modems drop off...
Or if they don't even connect... do you hear the initial connect negotiation ?

Usually an initialization string change can enhance your ability to connect to another modem..
Take a look at your Modem book and see if it recommends any specific init strings.

Try 'ATZ' or 'AT&F' or 'AT&F1' to initialize your modem.
These are the most-common strings, and one string will work
in almost all cases.

Try this one:

Before you try to connect, type the line:

AT S9=100 S10=255

First, try only to type it on the Rockwell modem, if it doesn't work try to type it on both of the modems.

What did you try?
What did you expect to happen?
Did you hear the modem "answer" ?
What happened?
What did not happen?

I can hear the other modem answer, but the handshake sound "stuckes" and doesn't stop.

I don't what type of ISP it is, but it is about 10 modems, which are connected in an ISDN line to a large (and known) internet provider service.
