friend is selling me his external speakerphone fax modem
he had it for 2 yrs and havn't had any problems...

it's not V. 90 though...
that's all he told me

if it's not V.90 is it a problem ...??
and is it worth it to buy it???

Depends on the speed and is that enof for you. Non V90 can be any speed really ... u need to find this out. Eg, 33k, 28k or 9.6k or even less.. like a 1200bps (1.2k). I had a 1.2k external many yrs back...

I can pay $10 for something that will be useful to me, but won't pay $5 for something that is not suitable for me.

Hope this helps.

It might be a 33.6 kbps. Or it might be one of the two competing 56k non-standards. Some of these had flashable roms, so they could be converted to the final standard (V90).

If it works it's worth $10.

Yes. Find out the brand + model and do a serach on google.

I was able to flash a K56 hayes to v90.

is it just installing a driver or more like updating your bios???
