supraexpress_56-215x_2200-firmware.exe (most current version V2.200-01)

Release Notes
-----------------
These firmware updates are provided for those who are experiencing difficulty with
their modem's current firmware. Unless you are experiencing connection or operation
difficulties with the modem, there should be no need to upgrade your firmware.
Firmware updates are created to deal with specific issues that may arise with
previous versions. In some cases, a firmware update may negatively affect the
situation. And for some modems there are no "flash-backs" to the previous firmware
versions to correct this.

Connection rates of 42K and above are common 56K connections for most phone lines.
If your modem is operating properly, but only connecting at these connection ranges,
Diamond/S3 would not recommend updating the firmware. This is because it is not likely
that a firmware/driver update will improve these connection speeds.

Before considering updating the firmware/drivers, you may want to first try the
following:

1) Try various initialization strings suggested on our web site, www.s3.com.
2) Try dialing into another number. The situation may only be present when dialing
into a specific number's equipment.
3) Test the line quality with the AT&V1 command.

If the situation persists after trying the above, then it may be beneficial to
update the modem's firmware.

It is recommeded that you use the V2.200 version of the firmware unless specifically
instructed otherwise by Diamond/S3 technical support.
