4-23-2000 - BIG UPDATES FOR DIAL-UP NETWORKING TODAY!
Removed the links column from the dial-up networking errors by number list and added many of the links to the fixes themselves.
I found that some of these links were worthless/uneeded and decided that the links column was just making the chart come up slower.
NEW PAGES: DUN/RAS Errors 600, 601, 603, 605, 606, 608, 609, 611, 612, 613, 614, 615, 618, 619, 622, 624, 625, 628, 640, 641, 642, 646, 647, 648, 649, 651, 652, 657, 658, 660, 661, 663, 664, 665, 668, 677, 679, 681, 690, 692, 699, 700, 701, 704, 708, 709, 710, 711, 712, 713, 714, 715, 716, 717, 719, 722, 723, 724, 725, 726, 727, 728, 729, 731, 732, 733, 734, 735, 736, 737, 738, 739, 741, 742, 743, 744, and 752.

I only need 45 error fixes to complete the collection now! If you know ANY of the fixes that I am missing, please contact me about it
ASAP. 18 DUN/RAS errors left to figure out how to solve! Almost there!
NEW PAGES(second update of the day): DUN/RAS errors 607, 610, 617, 620, 634, 636, 639, 643, 644, 653, 654, 655, 656, 659, 669, 670, 671, 672, 673, 674, 675, 693, 698, 702, 707, 730, and 740.
UPDATED PAGES: Abaton and 3JTech. NEW PAGES: A3J Engineering.
I also fixed, replaced, and/or removed 21 broken links.
4-19-2000 - Still
doing some heavy research on the chipsets. Item #1 - I added v34 speed
limitations to the PC-Tel Limit connection
speed page. Item #2 - I took the Motorola and PC-Tel AMR chipsets off of
the Quick Ref page, as these chipsets use the same AT
Command sets as their normal versions. Item #3 - PC-TEL
BREAKTHROUGH!!!!!! I found out that
s-register 91 in PC-Tel HSP modems can actually COMPENSATE for line
problems! It sets the -dBm transmit level, meaning it can compensate for
low or high voltage levels on your phone line. s91=10 is the default
setting. Try s91=5 and/or s91=15 to try and fix problems. Yay!
Also, thanks to Jeff at Motorola support I am learning about the SM-56's and
should have a better understanding of the chipset soon, as I am already looking
at some interesting topics like the +MS command that never seems to work and
s-register 10, which may help with dropped connects. I have updated the SM-56
and PC-Tel newsletters.
Updated the Motorola SM-56 speed limit info
and the modulation commands on the Quick Reference
page. Not much else. Doing some major research on the SM-56, and am
digging into Conexant to try and find an AT Command reference for their Riptide
(AMR) chipset. After those, I will be looking into the other AMR cards to
see what I can find out. Soft modems plague you? Just wait...now
that AMR's are starting to flood the market. Also, I'm looking into the
USRobotics/3COM Gaming Modem. Looks like some REALLY good stuff! I
thought it was the biggest mistake they could have made, by claiming something
so not possible, but by the sounds of the technology this modem is worth the
4-17-2000 - Updated the Quick Reference page adding the ESS x2/v90, ESS v90, TI x2/v90, STMicroelectronics AMR, Motorola SM-56 AMR, PC-Tel AMR, and Rockwell/Conexant Riptide AMR chipsets.
Also updated the Quick Reference page adding several v.42bis disable strings, and how to limit your conneciton speed.
Updated the Motorola SM-56 techie newsletter
article. Updated the major 56k chipset pages for their corresponding connect speed limitation articles. Converted the bmp's into gifs, and highlighted all of the hotspots
on the Win95b w/ISDN Service
Pack screenshot page. Fixed a broken link in the "unable
to estab.." article.

Decided to change "R&R" to "Uninstall and Reinstall" as several people wrote in, confused as to what "R&R" meant.

Began work on the "HELP!" section! Be SURE to check
this new section out! It is going to be a
great addition when it is completed! Also, I stayed up for a couple of
extra hours to bring you the first set of screenshots! Have fun with fully
functioning Win95b w/ISDN Service Pack DUN!!!!!!

4-13-2000 - Messed with the title graphic (*again*).
Redesigned manufacturer pages I-Z. Reformatted the manufacturer lists to a single font size.
UPDATED PAGES: Dacom, DAN Technology PLC, Dataflex, Diamond, Supra, S3, Digicom Systems Inc, and Digicorp. NEW PAGES: Digicom(Italian
Company). Changed format for the news page (setup archives, created hypertext news but only for recent news, old news can wait for this). Altered DUN Error page to go to 3 sections. The new section is
"DUN Errors without an Error Number". Created a mailing list at Listbot! Feel free to join with the link
at the bottom of the page!
Revised the v.huh? article. Reformatted manufacturer pages B-H.
Changed the resize setting of the main logo. Added a fix for DUN error 703
thanks to Marcel Benoit!
4-11-2000 - I
decided to invert the alphabet buttons for easier viewing.
Wrote article entitled ""v.huh?" v.stuff explained." Found out that my margins do not work properly in netscape, and fixed this bug.
Also found the reason why the search form was not centering in netscape and fixed it.
Decided to shave 10% off of the height and width of the main logo. Started work tonight on the "new look" of the init/driver pages.
Was able to finish all of the letter A, check 'em out and let me know what you think.
I found that on several computer's whose brightness or contrast was fairly dark the page buttons were fairly unreadable.
Due to this I decided to invert the buttons until I can create some graphics that are lighted better.
Added an Ambicom page (lucent venus and rockwell ACF PC Card manufacturers) thanks to
Kris over at ExecPC. Also figured out how to change the forum background and title graphic to create more
consistancy. The quick reference guide was somewhat difficult to read on
the left with the new background, so I set everything in it to bold face to fix
4-9-2000 - If you want a full update on the changes I made in the past two days, it isn't happening. Holy page redesign batman! Thanks to
Kice (an associate of mine at RiSC Software) I now have a kick butt page layout and some really awesome graphics. We worked for
countless hours this weekend to bring this new page and we finally have some nice eye candy. Enjoy all!
