Thread: BinModems - I mean WinModems

    just wondering what everyone's opinion and past experiences are with the lovely Internal WinModem, just got one for my girlfriend, and I myself hate them, but according to my dad (the manager) they have had the least problems with installations involving that modem...

    at least they still have a rockwell-based external modem....

    anyone?

    they suck they suck they suck

    from an IT support point of view - we have the most trouble with them - usually the internal laptop ones are the worst though

    Well I've got a usb software modem and it is suprisingly pretty good ! It's even an Aztech. Despite the **** company the modem rocks ! It doesn't seem to use much cpu either.

    I didn't say winmodem deliberately 'cas I've now got linux drivers for it, I'm yet to try it though.

    It's not at all uncommon to get 5.5 - 6k downloads. I have even had downloads at 11 k in the wee hours of the morning from a server only a couple of k away. No idea how that works since it's higher than the max therotical limit, but there you go !


    My BinModem is pretty good !
    WooHoo !! I at long last have a job ! Yay for me !


    ----------------- Proof I think FAR too much ----------------

    How does the headless horseman see where he's going ???
