Argh..... I hate ISDN....
I loved it! But not as much as I love adsl now...

IME, (Three houses with HH - 2 rural, 1 urban. The urban was never a
problem, nor was one of the rurals. The other rural had crap overheads
and along distance, and you could pretty much guess when it was going to
die. (Wet and stormy weather), averaged a line failure once every six
months or so, and once required a new HH box. OTOH, I gave it heavy use
and ran a BBS from it for some years)
As far as I know, ISDN either works or it doesn't. If there is
corruption, then it's *probably* at your end.
I have a USB socket on the home highway device, does anyone know how to
configure an ST_5841 (eek I can see me installing Win98 on the laptop to
try the USB Windows drivers for the HH box, to verify if it works - save
me from this, the ST_5481 is the USB Terminal Adaptor in the Home
Highway boxes - not recommended by BT but hey it is there!)
I replaced mine with adsl a year ago, the (then 1 year old) HH box
didn't have any extra sockets, so I know nothing of this, sorry.
Anyone got a working....
ISDN line on their BT home highway box?
1 at work, but now only being used for voice.
Old style PCI Speedway terminal adaptor?
Yep, got one in my drawer here. Also got a Courier I-Modem external that
does isdn or pots. The latter is superb for testing since it requires no
drivers - you just talk to it like it was an external modem.
The Speedway was the best of the four other pci cards I went through.
The cheaper generics had seriously bad drivers, or just plain didn't
work. Under windows it'd repeatedly "disappear". There were also some
dodgy windows driver sets released for the Speedway, I used the german
ones for its clone and they were great.
..any one of the above very handy if I could borrow, or use in-situ.
I can lend or sell one of mine, not got a lot of use for them now. I'm
at Hennock (email me privately) or I can drop it off at one of our shops
if time isn't critical. £10 for the speedway, £20 for the courier.
It's been a while since I fiddled with these, and I never used them
under linux, so my help is pretty limited as to the how-so's.
Can you copy any replies to the "disposable" email address
