Article #86 (419 is last): Newsgroups: freenet.sci.comp.atari.questions From: ad024 Subject: MPPEXPR PROBLEMS Date: Sun Jul 30 09:14:11 1989 In response to Bob Pearl's MPP problems I would like to mention my own experience. I own an Atari 130XE, AVATEX 1200 HC modem, Star NX10 printer, and run 850 EXPRESS software. I am also using PR INTERFACE. With the exception of the modems and the software (and 850 EXPRESS) looks very similar to MPPEXPRESS our two systems are the same. I have no difficulties at all with this set up. Therefore, I don't think that your problem lies in your power supply. My suggestion, (and I have no desire to contradict the sysop) is that either one of your cables is defective, or there is aa problem with your modem. I had an MPP1000E modem that I was running "SMART TERMINAL" software on. Although it ran fairly well, I did find that the 300 baud rate was very suseptable to static on the phone line, as most long duration downloads were totally unuseable. I recommend, and I know that they cost, is a 1200baud modem (Hayes compatable is nice). I would, however, check my cables before I did anything else. Look for shorts and OPENS.
