**********   U.S. Robotics Internet Call Notification Update   ***********

The latest Firmware for your modem will also require an update to the latest
Internet Call Notification (ICN).  

The modem's default for the incoming call waiting tone is +PCW=2.  This has
been changed so that the connection between your Dial-Up Networking (DUN) and
your Internet Service Provider (ISP) does not compromise ICN and
Modem on Hold (MoH).  If ICN is not running, the modem is not capable of
providing MoH.   

If for any reason you have the original Buzzme version of ICN and do not wish
to uninstall it,  follow the steps below to add +PCW=0.  

- Select "Start," "Settings," "Control Panel."
- Double-click "Modems."
- Select "U.S. Robotics 56K FAX EXT PnP."
- Click "Properties."
- Select  the "Connection" tab.
- Click "Advanced."
- In the "Extra Settings" section, add "+PCW=0" without the quotes.
- Click "OK."
- Click "OK."
- Click "Close."

If you had the original release of ICN from Buzzme,  follow the steps below to
upgrade to the latest version.
