Mfc: the company no longer makes/supplies modems and/or their chipsets, or has been taken over, or otherwise fallen into commercial Tophet.
Modem: it is no longer in production.
Chip, Chipset, Family or Family-Type: it is no longer produced at the Foundry.
In short, the item marked with a † has shuffled off this mortal coil, it has gone to meet it’s maker, to sing with the choir invisible; it is, not to put too fine a point upon it, an ex-modem (-Mfc, -Chip, -Chipset, -Family or -Type).
Site Info, History & Page Stats
These pages are a LAMP-development of the original Modem-Help, UK site (most of the old HTML pages still exist, but havn’t been updated for quite some time). That site, in it’s turn, was a transfer from the first html site on free-pages at Freeserve (sadly, now gone). The current format allows superb search facilities, customisation by Registered members, plus is quick ‘n’ easy to update.
Diligently put together in the UK by Alex Kemp. All efforts have been taken to ensure the veracity of what is written - if you know of any errors or omissions then please let us know.

V.90 improvements via selective retransmitting frames improvement + utilizing more of the V.42bis implementation. BugFixes: modem lockup during re-training fixed. Added:
ATI20 - PCM information
ATI21 - DSP Patch level (simple)
ATI99 - DSP Patch level (extended)
V.90 + MNP performance improved. Changes: added a new test command ‘AT*TT’ that allows manufactors to set the DSP to send a particular signal; for command summary type “AT*TT?” (no quotes); this is identical to the “AT$TT” command on the CL-MD565x and CL-MD345x products; S23 now reports the Baudrate and Parity.
V.90 improvements. BugFixes: fixed poor 2nd & later connections; TAM bug fixed; Analog LoopBack Test now works; AT&Z is now fixed; ATX0 connect message fixed; Dial Modifier ‘Flash Hook’ fixed; uninstall issues fixed. Additions: S91 & S92 (Data, & Fax Transmit Level) + S89, S90, & S93 (DTMF High, DTMF Low, & Voice Transmit Level) - changes saved to EEPROM; now connect in MNP mode; Modem sends clear down before going On-Hook; 1300-Hz Calling Tone Enabled with AT-C command; AT-J controls V.42 Detection Phase. Improvements: V.42bis performance.
First Official Release of the Comfire 1 code. Supports Windows ’95 & ’98 and ITU V.90.
