---------------------------------------------------------------
1.  If You See References to DOS, Windows 3.1x, or NT On the Help
    Screens During Setup

Ignore them.  Your Winmodem supports only Windows 98 and 95.

---------------------------------------------------------------
2. If You Have Problems Connecting

Be sure the modem initialization string in your communications
software contains AT&F for hardware flow control.

---------------------------------------------------------------
3. If You Are Using a TI Notebook with a Phoenix Card Manager

At this time there are known issues with functionality in
a Texas Instruments notebook that uses a Phoenix Card Manager.
Check the Acer web site at http://www.acer.com for solutions.

---------------------------------------------------------------
4.  If You are Using an NEC Versa M/100 Computer

No audible tones will be produced when you insert or remove
your modem from an NEC Versa M/100.

---------------------------------------------------------------
5.  If You are Using an IBM 760C or an IBM365XD Computer

When the computer has reactivated after going into sleep or
suspend modes, you must remove and reinsert the modem before
using it. 

---------------------------------------------------------------
6.  If You are Using Quicken Version 6

The default maximum baud rate of a modem in Quicken 6 is 
19,200bps. Follow the instructions in the Quicken 6 manual to
increase this baud rate for your Winmodem.

---------------------------------------------------------------
7.  If You are Connecting to a Comsphere 3820+ Modem

When you're connecting to a Comsphere 3820+ modem at speeds of 
4800bps or lower, you must disable the V.8 protocol in your 
modem. To do this, change S-Register 32 from the default 2 to 0.

---------------------------------------------------------------
8.  If Your Modem Won't Answer a Data Call

Most communications software packages allow you to select one
of the following ways to answer a call:  "detect fax & data",
"data only", "fax only", and "ignore ring".  If you're using 
RapidComm software and have "detect fax & data" selected, if
your modem won't answer data calls, set the answer mode to 
"data only".

---------------------------------------------------------------
9.  If You Get a General Protection Fault

You must be using Windows 98 or Windows 95.

General protection faults (GPF) usually occur when insufficient 
memory is allocated by the computer to perform a task.  If you
get a general protection fault while using your modem, do one or
more of the following:

- Be sure your computer meets the minimum memory requirements 
  for the modem:
	At least a 486 laptop 
        At least a 50 Mhz processor
        At least 8 MB RAM 
        At least 10 MB of free hard disk space
- Be sure your COM port or IRQ setting doesn't conflict with 
  any other devices on your computer
- Remove and reinsert the modem in the slot to be sure it's 
  seated correctly and securely
- Uninstall and reinstall your modem 
- Free up memory by closing open applications until no more
  GPFs appear.

--------------------------------------------------------------
10. Disabling IBM Internal Modems

If you are using an IBM Thinkpad 755CSE or other IBM computer 
that has an internal modem, you must disable it in order to 
use your PC Card.  To do this, follow these steps:

1.  Load Windows
2.  Open the IBM Thinkpad Setup Group
3.  Open the DSP Icon
4.  Remove the check from the Telephony Function
5.  Save 
6.  Reboot the computer

---------------------------------------------------------------
11. Using ATYx Commands

Because ATYx commands are not enabled for use with your 
Winmodem, the Set Next Reset feature is not available. 

---------------------------------------------------------------
12. Using ATDT" Dial Strings 

We recommend you do not use letters with ATD dialing commands.
 
---------------------------------------------------------------
13. Faxing High Resolution Pages

When faxing high resolution pages, the text received will be
distorted if both the sending and the receiving modem do not
use High Resolution Mode.    

---------------------------------------------------------------
