Will a USR Sportster Winmodem 33.6 (flash upgraded to X2) work under BeOS. I am aware that it doesn't work under Linux (shame cause its a (Edited by Computer101) hot OS) but does anyone know about whether it works with BeOS??

Any help will be much appreciated.  Cheers - Dan

Winmodem does not work with beos or linux, because is not a real modem it uses your cpu to emulate modem. But if you wait somone may write driver for linux there was some info on web

danlittley: well i am running an sporster Si Us Robotics internal which is listed as a winmodem.....
usrobotics currently sells modem with the logo: "only works under windows" but if you have jumpers on your modem like my modem does you shoulnt have any problems to use it under linux.
