Re: Misc. ramblings about older USR modems
Before you go through the hassle of upgrading your firmware could you check
the faxes you receive are regularly corrupt.
I was forced to turn off hylafax copy quality checking because i just could
not receive faxes from certain locations with USR modems. At first i
thought this was the modem or the sending location but without using
hylafax's copy quality checking the resulting faxes received were almost
ie Try running cqtest or similar on your received faxes.
