For those with Motorola SM56 PCI, i have a solutionthat doesn't make the modem disconnect every time your hdd is overworking orwhenever you run large programs. I had a serious problem in which every time Ieven put a cd on my cdrom, un archived a file, or played a game, i gotdisconnected. I couldn't work on my pc that way at all, therefore I've spenthundreds of hours searching in webpages for something that might help, like initstrings or whatever.. none worked. Only what i did worked, and I hope this worksout for other pci-based modems, too:
From Hank in California: The Win98 SM56 driver set from the WDM 6.02.13.zip was a fast and easy install on a two year old Motorola SM56, originally a \"56K\" modem. It did indeed install the ability to use the call waiting feature, and connects in approx. one fourth the time to my ISP's V92 line.There is a small improvement in load and download times, but that is miraculous considering the copper problems that I have on a dial-up that is two and one-half miles from the switch. I have joked about the barbed wire fence being part of my circuit, but in rainy weather it could be believed!
From Henk in the Netherlands: I've got a Motorola SM56 PCI modem and couldn't find a driver for XP. With your help I found the driver on the Motorola site. First I tried the newest one (6.05.00) but that wouldn't work (Device Manager tells me that the device wouldn't start). But, the other driver on the site (6.02.13) works fine! One thing, I had to disable the \"Modem on hold\" feature in the \"sm56hlpr\" application before I could dial out.
Motorola Inc.'s software products division, meanwhile, unveiled its first direct motherboard implementation of the AC-Link soft-modem chip-set family at last week's Intel Developer Forum in Palm Springs, Calif. Like the ADI/3Com solution, the Motorola SM56 AC-L design leverages the work in silicon DAAs, which make the board space for direct motherboard implementations appropriate for the first time.
Motorola, meanwhile, has taken an opposite path in add-in card and motherboard designs by emphasizing soft functionality, where many function calls are handed off to the host processor. Motorola already had used the SM56 AC-L chip-set design in a variety of modem-riser and daughtercard applications and had received Microsoft Windows logo certification for the chip set in July.
The key to bringing the design to motherboards, said software products marketing director Michael Tramontano, was to use Motorola's own silicon DAA with the data-pump peripheral. Intel announced at IDF that this Motorola design will be standardized in Intel's FlexATX desktop motherboard family. The entire modem design typically occupies two square inches of board space. 153554b96e
