PCMCIA XJ1144 Modem Again! by Al Wong <awong@xxxxxxxx>

Sorry about my previous message. My phone connection seems
to have flaked out. Anyway...

Geoff,

My XJ1144 modem is on order right now so I can't test this but I think
Bryan mentioned that only the XJ1144 model modem would work on the PC
Plus (not the XJ2144). Of course, I will confirm this as soon as I get
my modem in the mail (probably next week).

Typing just PQSETUP on the command line, brings up the fast help text.
The "/R" option lists "<x=device, m=1|2, n=3|4>". What does this mean???

I'll let you know as soon as I get my modem and can try these commands!

On another note, can anyone recommend a company/person who refurbishes
battery packs for the Poqet PC Plus?

 Al
