QFrequently Asked Questions
================================================================================

Q.1What is the proper pronunciation of "ZyXEL"?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The proper pronunciation of "ZyXEL" is apparently "Zi-sell".


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q.2What is a "ZyXEL"?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ZyXEL is the name of a modem manufacturer. Thus a "ZyXEL" is a brand of
modem. They manufacture a series of fast, feature-packed modems that operate
on multiple platforms. The following chart will serve to quickly explain the
product line:

Note: The U-1496, aka the U-1496S is no longer manufactured.

For further information about ZyXEL modems, contact your local authorized
reseller, or mail server (Question I.2).


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q.3How fast do ZyXELs communicate with other ZyXELs and other modems?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ZyXEL modems will communicate with each other at the lowest speed that is
common to both modems. This means that the "Plus" (U-1496 B+/E+/S+) and
rackmount models will communicate with each other at the ZyXEL-specific speed
of 19.2 kbps. Non-"Plus" models communicate with each other and with "Plus"/
rackmounts at the ZyXEL-specific speed of 16.8 kbps.

More information is needed with respect to ZyXEL modems equipped with the
cellular option.

The fastest speed that ZyXEL modems will communicate with non-ZyXEL modems is
at 14.4 kbps (V.32bis).

The fastest speed that ZyXEL modems will communicate with USR HST/VHST modems
is at 2400 baud. ZyXELs will communicate with a USR Dual Standard (DS) modem
at 14.4 kbps (V.32bis).

Q.5What are additional methods to contact ZyXEL USA technical support?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[This was originally posted by Brent Mosbrook ([email protected]) of ZyXEL
USA technical support. It was slightly modified by me ([email protected]).]

The following information summarizes the various methods of accessing ZyXEL
technical support.

BBS We operate a 4-node BBS, 24 hrs a day. This provides ZyXEL
users access to the latest rom binaries, Zfax updates,
configuration guidelines, and software setup instructions.
In addition, sysop pricing and order forms are available.
You can reach the BBS by dialing 714-693-0762

Internet Technical support issues can be addressed to our new
internet account. Users can reach us by sending email to
[email protected] (Brent Mosbrook (ZyXEL)). We also monitor
the comp.dcom.modems and comp.dcom.fax newsgroups, and will
post or reply when appropriate.

An anonymous FTP site has also been established at the same
location. FTP ftp.sdsc.edu, and ZyXEL related files are in
the /pub/other/zyxel directory. We will place the latest
official roms and software here. This site is not intended
to replace the BBS, which has a much wider array of
available files.

Fidonet We maintain a node on the network, which is linked to our
BBS. You can reach us at: 1:103/725 (1:202/701.101
secondary address). Users can netmail technical support
questions to the above address, and they will be replied to
by our staff. We monitor the comm, hs_modems, and ZyXEL
echos, will post or reply when appropriate.

CompuServe We are on-line at CIS and can be reached as user
71333,2734. We do not have a file library or
forum dedicated to ZyXEL at this time, but we
will respond to any technical support related
issue in e-mail.

* Note * Please use these accounts to address technical support
issues. We are not equipped to respond to sales-related
issues, such as the latest pricing or rom upgrade
purchases. These should be directed to our sales staff at
714-693-0808

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q.6What is the latest official ROM release(s)?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

6.01 available only for 1-Mbit EPROMs
5.05m available for 1-Mbit and 512-Kbit EPROMs
(really old non-plus models)

Beta ROMs have been known to ship in modems supplied by ZyXEL USA, so you
may have a newer version than those listed here.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q.6AWhat does one do if one does not have have the latest ROMs?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The most convenient way to get the latest ROMS is to buy them. OCOMP, The
Questor Project, ZyXEL USA, and others sell EPROMS with the latest
EPROM release. (see company directory at the end)

Another way is to obtain EPROMs (refer to question Q.3B), FTP the latest ROM
images from a FTP site, and then use an EPROM burner to burn in the latest
ROMs. You then have a set of the latest ROMs.

Hint: Having two sets of ROMs around is a GREAT idea. Keep old set that
was in the modem, and install the latest ROMs. If a bug is found in the new
ROMs, the old set can be re-installed. If the new ROMs are OK, then the old
set can be erased with an EPROM eraser (UV-light) and reused to burn in the
next ROM release.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q.6BWhere does one obtain EPROMs to update modem ROMs?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Almost any major electronics supplier should be able to get the needed parts.
You'll also need access to an (E)PROM burner capable of burning 1-Mbit PROMs.
Shop around for your EPROMs, as prices can vary drastically.

You need **TWO** EPROMs for a complete set of ROMs.

***BUY TWO EPROM CHIPS***

NOTE: Radio Shack doesn't count as a major electronics dealer.

Part number to get: 27C010 1-Mbit EPROM
27C512 512-Kbit EPROM (really old non-plus's)


120ns or faster ROMs are recommended for non-plus model modems.
100ns or faster ROMs are recommended for plus model modems.

150ns ROMs have been known to work, but are definitely not advised.

Note for the inexperienced:
Using faster ROMs will not make your modem go faster. The speeds
recommended are those found to provide good reliability and operation
and getting faster ones will not provide any further speed enhancement.

Note for the lazy:
Robert McKeever ([email protected]) has just purchased a large quantity
of 27C010's and would be willing to sell some at a reasonable price
(plus shipping) for those who don't want to shop around. E-mail him
for details.

Robert McKeever ([email protected]) would even be willing to have them
burned for a few bucks more.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q.6CWhat does one do with the latest ROMs?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do a "AT &V" in your communications program. This will show the
current active configuration settings on your modem. Print out this display.
The information will prove to be handy should something go wrong, or should
you decide to perform a hardware reset.

Install them! Instructions are listed on page 15-7 and 15-8 of the ZyXEL
User's Manual (Revision 2.1).

Jussi Torhonen ([email protected]) suggests that a hardware
reset is advisable at this point. The hardware reset procedure is listed on
page 15-7 of the ZyXEL User's Manual (Revision 2.1). This is to allow
setup of the memory area reserved for new extended S-registers. Note that
this will cause the modem to lose your preferred configuration settings. The
settings can be restored by re-inputting the information derived from the
"AT &V" command.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q.7What are known country codes?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Austria: 233
Finland:240
Japan: 234
North America: 255

If you know of any other country codes, please mail them to Robert Wong
([email protected]) for inclusion in a future version of this FAQ.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q.7AHow does one change a country code?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

These steps allow you to change the the line interface to match those
used/required for operation in various countries.

Type:
ats38=2
at#g123 where 123 is the country code desired.
at&w to save these settings

Probably best to power-cycle the modem at this point

at#h to get current country code (North America = 255)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q.8What kind of power supply is used in a ZyXEL?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ZyXEL uses a transformer that puts out 20VAC, 900mA with a center tap

The transformer should ideally have output between 50 Hz and 60 Hz.

+-----+
AC --> | o o | <-- AC
\ o /
---
^
+-- Center tap

Robert Wong ([email protected]) has a power supply is a 120V AC, 60 Hz, 12.5W
model that outputs 9V AC, 1000mA.

Please e-mail Robert Wong ([email protected]) if you have a different power
supply.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q.9How does one make Caller ID (CID/CND) work correctly?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Caller ID or Caller Number Delivery is a *paid* service that may be available
from the local phone company. One can *subscribe* to this service and get a
ZyXEL modem to display the time, name and phone number of the calling party.
To get Caller ID to work properly, the timing of certain registers need to
be set.

Robert McKeever ([email protected]) writes:

Way back in September, ZyXEL released a note (now disappeared off my drives)
which described the use of the S45 and S46 registers to set timing.

They (wrongly) assumed that the ringing on the GTD-5 exchanges was exactly
1.75s, following by 50ms silence, then data; for DMS-100 as a 2s - 3.5s ring
interval, followed by 500ms of silence.

The CallerID length depends on the amount of data the exchange transmits
as its message.


**********************------++++++++++++++++++
^ ^ ^
| | |
Ring Silence CallerID Data

I quote from their message:

<< It is difficult for the modem to receive CallerID signals for both exchanges
without configurable parameters. Two new parameters are implemented for this
purpose, S45 and S46. They are called "guard time" and "silence interval",
respectively.

The silence interval is the consecutive silence that the modem should detect
after ring on before CallerID signal to be processed. Distinctive ringing may
be combined with CallerID, and therefore a guard time is needed for the modem
to inhibit the silence detection.

Registers S45 and S46 are in units of 20ms. Default setttings should be in
the range of S45=100, S46=28 for DMS-100 (Bell, Northern), and possibly
S45=87 and S46=3 for GTD-5 switches. >>

The place this argument falls down, is on the GTD-5 switch, where they
use "flash ringing". Flash ringing starts at any point in the ring cycle,
which means you can get anywhere from 0.1s up to 2.0s of ringing current
before the 50ms silent period followed by data from the central office switch.

In any event, you now have the parameters for the critical registers
for CallerID, for whatever good it may do you.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q.10How does one patch GNU NetFax to work with ZyXELs?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Receiving:

Receiving works flawlessly, PROVIDED that you convince Netfax to send
0x12 instead of 0x11 to the Zyxel when starting to receive a new page.

Apparently the standard changed this over two years ago, and most other
modems still also accept 0x11 as a compatibility kludge.

Sending:

The key to sending multiple pages is to throw out AT+FDT=a,b,c,d and
replace it with AT+FDT, and to set the desired parameters in a
AT+FDCC=a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h message sent when starting up.

A pre-made set of patches is available from ftp.cs.psu.edu:/pub/fenner/ZyXEL
as a file called netfax.patches


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q.11What modifications are needed to S/S+ models to get the option?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This modification enables the 3 pins next to the power connector for
the connection of an oscilliscope to view an eye pattern for line diagnostics.

Note: these 2 chips are CMOS devices and are static sensitive. Use
suitable caution.

chip Number Part Number Manufacturer Description
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
U11 AD7528JN (Analog Devices) 8-bit buffered DAC
U12 TL072CP Texas Instruments 2 x FET op-amp


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q.12Once a fax is received, what does one do?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A fax is received by your ZyXEL and fax software. The fax (usually) is
stored as a file on the hard disk in some sort of image format (TIFF, PCX,
etc.). One could call this file a "fax image".

The fax software or some other software program can be used to open and
print the fax image.

To put the contents of the fax into a word processor, there are two options:

a) The fax image could just be imported as an image into the document. This
is not a good solution, as the contents of the fax cannot be edited and the
image itself may not be too clear.

b) A better alternative is to use a software package that has an Optical
Character Recognition (OCR) capability. OCR may be built into the fax
software, or it may be a separate software package. Retrieve the fax file
into the OCR software and use the OCR software to convert the fax IMAGE into
an ASCII file.

Import this new ASCII file into the word processor. In this manner, the
fax image was OCR'ed and is now in a clearer, editable format on the word
processor.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q.13What are the prices for upgrading a ZyXEL?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ZyXEL USA is offering to upgrade U-1496E models to U-1496E+ models for
US$150 (plus shipping). Upgrading your U-1496E to a U-1496E+ by this
method will ensure that your warranty remains valid.

There are reports that a U-1496E can be upgraded by users to a U-1496E+
for substantially less. This "do-it-yourself" method seems to work.

Any modification made to the hardware (other than ROM upgrades)
will void the warranty.

The prices for upgrading existing models to support V.Fast have been set.
ZyXEL USA has announced that upgrades to V.fast will cost US$249
for U-1496E+/B+ models and US$299 for U-1496E/B/S/S+ models. The
availability of the V.Fast upgrade will be available pending the
finalization of the V.Fast standard (Q2 1994 estimated). (The upgrade
is valid in the US and Canada only.)

All pricing listed above is for non-sysops. BBS sysops may have a discount.

***begin soapbox/comments/questions/requests***
This is my first crack at doing a FAQ. Please be patient. Any errors,
either in technical content or English usage (Gasp!) are entirely mine.

Please help to update the part of the FAQ dealing with the "List of
Fax software that works with ZyXEL modems". It is woefully incomplete.

Look for improvements in the "I" and "P" areas of the FAQ.

How does one upload to ftp.cs.psu.edu (to put the FAQ in /pub/fenner/ZyXEL)?
Thanks.
