    why do you bother selling old boat-anchor modem boxes, telstra and all
    and sundry bin then in the dumpster, if you look hard enough you will
    find many around covered in dust, i recon i junked some about 5 years

  3. If you have a problem why complain? Just ignore my posts and don't bother
    looking at the listings. If someone is interested they'll have a look - if
    not they won't. Simple!

  4. They are good project boxes.

    And compare to the usual floor sweepings that are sold on ebay, good value.

    i said you can pick up a box of old modems and sundry items at IT
    Auction for no more than few $, or wait untill you see at a dumpster

  8. If a piece of hardware still works, it has a use. After all Rod, throwing
    away used IT and comms gear just contributes to the gross resource piggery
    that our society operates on so even a little but of re-use and recycling is
    better because it keeps stuff out of the waste stream and also brings more
    value to whoever re-uses it.
    Just because you might have the latest and the greatest of every piece of
    electronic trickery doesn't mean everyone else does, or wants to, or can
    afford to. :cool:

    Not necessarily. In spades when there are plenty of other examples
    of more capable hardware available for free that works too.

    I must have something like 10 modems that all still work.

    Its pretty bloody unlikely that anyone but an ignorant
    fool would pay much for that dinosaur of yours.
    No one but a fool will be reusing it, you watch.
    Only a fool would bother with a V32 modem now.

    There are plenty of much more viable
    modems around than that for free.

  10. Someone has put in a bid. Looks like he asked a question re the
    construction, found it is all steel, and has bid. Maybe the box and internal
    transformer may be of value for a project of some sort. Whatever, the item
    will sell and the seller has at least $9.95 for it at this point of time. I
    guess the tranny and power lead is worth at least $5 and the box would cost
    a lot more then $5 to buy. Maybe there is value in there after all.
    I think it is OK, May 16, 2006

    I agree. Keep your ISDN modem and dont get ADSL

  13. Dinosaur it may be, but it's a working dinosaur and that means that to the
    right person, it still has value.
    Well it already has a bid, so it's going to sell. I know the bidder is
    serious because he asked some questions not related to it's data rate before
    That maybe your view, but V.32 is more reliable over very long distances
    than V.34, etc. which is probably why lower data rates are preferred for
    things like data-logger applications, etc. that require remote connectivity
    with long-distance 'back to base' capability.

  14. Well I am getting DSL soon, but I'm not using some crappy hardware with it.
    If I go with normal ADSL I'll use a Cisco ADSL card in a spare 17xx router
    as opposed to a throw-away ADSL modem. Reliability and flexibility in
    configuration outweigh the significantly higher cost of the ADSL-WIC IMHO at

    If I stick with ISDN I'll still use genuine Cisco hardware instead of
    something cheap and nasty.

    No maybe about it.
    So are my V21 modems too.
    Like I said, only the ignorant fools.
    No surprise that there are fools around, stupid.
    You 'know' nothing of the kind.
    Irrelevant when any decent modem can do V.32
    Thanks for that completely superfluous proof that you have
    never ever had a fucking clue about anything at all, ever.
    Rod Speed, May 17, 2006
  16. Hope springs fscking eternal, lol. Do you really think Rodbot is going
    to believe you? You know it, I know it and quite a few peeps would also
    know it, but the great unwashed just don't believe it.

    And yep, I do have a collection of older modems stashed away, including
    a couple of these.

    And some have enough of a clue to be able to use V32
    mode with a modern modem too, even if something as
    basic as that is completely beyond fools like you.
    And I bet you wont actually be using them for anything too.

    I dont expect to bother with any of the V21 modems I have either.

    Fer f'ks sake!

    If the blasted things will do 14.4k group II fax, I'll pay $2 each plus
    postage for a couple and the same $2 each for at least 5 others on the
    condition that the OP smashes them with a large hammer.

    Anyone else want to join me in killing this stupid thread?
