QNX and the internet, wtf!??!
« on: January 08, 2003, 08:39:12 AM »
 Ok, I picked up an External USR 56k X2/v90 Fax Modem. I got QNX to go online with it, but now I have the problem of it connecting at a normal speed of 45kbs or what ever, but it runs slow as crap. Another problem is that it randomly pauses during transfers, like you'll be loading a page, then suddenly the RD and SD lights stop flashing, and nothing happens, this also is a pain because it can take up to 15 minutes to download a 700k file off of Aminet, don't even get me started on larger files. :/

 The thing is, that it works perfectly under Winblos XP. Anyone have any ideas, or know any init strings I could use on it?

Howdy!  That sux!  I dunno, I dusted off my supra 14.4 external and QNX worked better than winUAE on top of Win98.  Have you tried pinging?  Does QNX do that without loading AmigaXL?  Not much help, but I thought my Init string was only ATZ etc.  :-?

 Hmm, well so far so good, I changed the switches on the back of the modem to default factory settings and data terminal ready, now it "seems" to be working perfectly.

I also used the init string AT&F1 just for exta back up.

I like QNX it dosen't like the computer I was running it on tho. For some reason it didn't like the VIA chipset. I don't thinkI do either. They work very intermitantly; especially the audio. It's been several months sinceI used it last guess I'll go check out there waeb space.

Glad to see you fixed the problem.  :-)

I assume that the ports have been setup at 115kb and it`s not a problem with your phone line (gain).

Where is the browser cache? is there enough space allocated?

Try another modem , i`ve found that certain providers only support certain protocols...

in my case i used a  supafax modem with btinternet and got 48 kb when i changed to freeserve it dropped down to 33...just now i`m using a olitec(same  v90) and it`s only 46667bps!

i use hardware(RTS/CTS) SWITCHED ON.
Modulation type is standard with the `extra setting` of S=11
i use error correction, and compress data.

Hmm, it was working great after I made that one change on the modem, well kinda, it worked better, but then if you tried to browse the web or something while you were downloading, or lets say you were trying to load two pages at once, then it would stop transfers again, and the RD & SD lights would cease to flash.

 I like QNX too, but this is pissing me off, the modem works great under winblows, I am using it right now, so it ain't the provider.

 I'll try to alter the com ports in QNX and look at some other things, but first off, how do I do that exactly?

 I do not know crap about QNX except for what I can click and point at. :/

 Ha, check this, I was in the middle of SLOWLY downloading FreeCiv in QNX a second ago, and decided to check up on my post in yahoo groups, when all of a sudden all my windows froze and I could not close then, so I went to exit the Photon session, and my computer froze. :)

 I often crash QNX, usually though it is when my AmigaXL is loaded in the background...

...seemless integration of OS's my ass!
