Chris Angus now has broadband, after a speed increase was reported in the village. In a way it makes it more of a vacation as it completely forces me to change my routine and waste less time online. We asked Tiscali’s Jody Haskayne to find out.

It is based on the Ambient chipset, which was bought out by Intel — and this chipset is V. We spoke to some, as well as an ISP still offering dialup, to find out why. The same kind of modem is available in a serial variant — this one unlovingly given to me without its power adaptor, hence the written specs in the corner: As part of the cost-reduction of modems, you can see that a full speaker has been forgone in this modem, instead replaced by a tiny tinny buzzer quite a common thing to do.

As of the end of last week she moved onto broadband and she set up the router herself,” replied fellow forum user Dr Monkeyface. SVD was very little used, it stood for Simultaneous Voice and Data, which allowed you to talk to the person at the other end voice digitized and compressed by the modems and data rate stolen from the data channel at the same time as the data transfer which would slow down a bit due to bandwidth lost.

We asked Tiscali’s Jody Haskayne to find out. This is probably a later version PCB, that has no phone jack, just a line jack, leaving an empty hole in the back of the casing. Dutch telecoms provider KPN is axing dial-up and shifting everybody to broadband. It too, has a blue translucent case and is relatively compact.

I guess this shows just how expensive the modems might have modm and the need to repair them was a design consideration. In June, next year, my dial-up modem will moeem 10 years old. Quite expected is that they are Rockwell based, and just so happens to use the Contingency perhaps, but now everybody is on broadband it’s somewhat superfluous.

Or maybe it was only because of the varying telephone design considerations of meeting different line standards around the world. Other chipsets did exist, and did have some benefit — and some were even DSP based which allowed flexibility as the modem modulation was defined through software rather than in an ASIC. My dialup provider was Firefly. This one had very good voice capabilities provided external headset is used and performed moderately well — this one had been previously disassembled and battered.

It’s been a real trooper has that modem.

But 56k might not have such a long life as many would expect. The hybrid transformer is in the bottom left hand corner, with some of the line devices unpopulated probably for other line impedances around the world.

Another unwanted modem — this I managed to get off the street, is an AcerModem 56 Surf.

I actually wrote down the enabled firmware options on this modem — one of them is x2. I am very happy and can even use Google Earth! Oh, and one more thing. He did, however, admit that he didn’t really enjoy the speed. In one of my earlier tech-flashback posts, I had posted pictures of my Banksia external modems, and their internals.

Will he get it eventually? One Response to Tech Flashback: The same kind of modem is available in a serial variant — this one unlovingly given to me without its power adaptor, hence the written specs in the corner:.

Some even reduced the number of parts, sockets and LEDs as another way. One thing to note is that this one supports V. It has inbuilt speaker and mic for speakerphone operation with external jacks for use with a headset.
