USR 56K Performance Pro Modem and AOL 5.0
Posted on 2001-07-18
Hi,ya'll, me *again*. Ok Ive been using a US Robotice 56K Performance Pro modem (3CP5610A) with AOL 5.0 for about 6 months and a few weeks ago, I had to reinstall Windows 98SE. Since that time I have been unable to maintain a connection of any sort...5 minutes online at a time even is RARE. After a couple of weeks of tech support, it was decided i needed to upgrade drivers. I ended up wiping my drive then reformatting (had other driver problems), then reinstalling the modem and updating the drivers. Its still a no go.
According to diagnostics and my control panel, the modem is working and the drivers are correctly installed. I have tried *all* modem speeds available. The access #'s in my area are fine, Im using AOL 4.0 on a very old system right now, using the same access numbers. The DOS redirect program required for this modem shows in my program files as well. Im completely lost on what to do..unfortunately, the web site for usr is too complex for me to be able to load most of the pages on this computer. Any ideas?
