No:), I don't mean buy a new modem.......I also use USR products.
But sometimes I have to "relearn things" as there is just so much to
learn.....I'll look through my books this evening and see if there's
anything about these "strange characters" in them...chances are there
just might be, along with a simple fix.........ah details, deatails.
I seem to have read that USR used a "modified AT" command set...
but can't remember where....
 I'd think that in this case "good luck" means
Don't give up based on the words of one old fool;)
