Here, Here! I agree with Robert completely. Whenever we have problems with
any client connecting, getting dropped, etc., about 90% of the time they
have some kind of USR modem! IMHO, the only product that USR has ever
produced that's worth anything is the Sporster 128K ISDN adapter. We never
buy anything made my USR, nor do we recommend USR to our customers.
