It works I connect 54666 bps every time now ,thanks for the info.Here
are the test results from my local prodigy # again . the string I use
now in extra settings is AT&F1S32=66M0

at s32=66
OK

I just baught a new v.90-x2 USR internal faxmodem model 5687 and now I
only connect at 31200 to my isp Prodigy Internet .any one else have this
problem.I use the string At&F1 do I need some special string now?.Also I
had to set the jumpers because the default plug&play jumper settings
didn't work .when I turned on my computer I just got a blank screen .I
think that has to do with my old phoenix bios though.         

 

Could you post a paste of a Hyperterminal screen to the modem giving it
ATI6 I7 I11
after attempting a connection, please?
Also, try using Hyperterminal:
ATDT 1 888 877 9248
and paste your connect message for us to see.
Also, try
ATDT 1 800 590 4857
and paste your connect message for us to see.

Would much appreciate the information.
Thanks,
Richard         
I still always conect at 31200 and I used the inf from the cd-rom

The I6 & I11 would be more meaningful if you issue them after you connect to the toll-free #s - after the CONNECT, type +++
when you get OK, type ATH, then give it the AT I6 I11....

but, from what I see so far, it looks like you are [initially] connecting at
VERY high speeds on toll circuit. Although, it may be dropping immediately.
The USR msg shows 2 connects - 54666 & 33333...

You should also try ATDT[your local PI #] and see what connect speed you
get, wait about 15 seconds, give it the +++; then ATH, then AT I6 I11 to see
what your speed is at time of disconnect
.

ok i did the test to all the #s

OK

Dean,

It appears to me that you have an excellent telephone line and are getting
VERY high speeds on the toll circuits. Your modem is failing to negotiate x2
on the local call.

My guess is the local problem is either
(a) the firmware in the server modem you are calling is not up-to-date
(b) 3Com has failed to address the [widespread] problems with 56k LOCAL
connections.

[It appears to me your Prodigy node is on the Split Rock system - I've heard
a lot of negative stuff about them...]

I'd suggest you try other local 56k access #s to see if you get a 56k
connection with them.

If these #s are local to you - try them - I've found
IBM (612)-943-5801
AOL (612)-502-9000
AOL (612)-630-0771

If any of those #s are local and you get 56k to them, it most likely is a
problem with firmware/setup of the Prodigy node for you. If you don't get it
with any of them, .... well....

Thanks for keeping me informed
.

The documentation for x2 server firmware release 5.6 (the most recent
released version for the ISPs is now 5.8), indicates a problem with older
firmware if a 'new version' of client firmware (which you have) is released:

"If any new version of x2 client code is released, the existing version of
the Quad Modem cannot identify the new version of x2 client and will train to V.34 speeds.
Quad Modem 5.5.7/5.6.7 checks the client's x2 version number and will train to the x2
version currentlyimplemented in the Quad Modem instead of falling back to V.34."



The problem here becomes trying to find out what version your POP is using -
if you ask Prodigy, the people you can get to probably don't know
.
