If I still had a phone line (or a mobile phone that
worked as a CSD modem), I would happily help you test it. Sadly I
have nothing at home that will do the job.
Recently, it's been reported that analog modem over MagicJack has been worki for some people. I just wanted to chip in my own two cents: if you're think of purchasing, your experience may vary.
I'm using Time Warner Cable Roadrunner in Southeast Texas. I have a USB MagicJack plugged into an XP box with no processor load, lots of free memory which is connected via ethernet directly into a router.
I tried dialing four different systems. Initially, I got a decent 28.8 connection, but then it retrained annoyingly a few times before dropping carrier. Not useful at all. It pretty much got worse from there, never finding a good carrier.
I tried forcing 14400, 9600, all the way to 300. I didn't bother with less. tried various modulation standards, limiting the retraining speeds, and I tr giving my ethernet port the highest priority on the router.
Eventually I plan on buying a Magicjack Plus and trying that. I just don't know if my latency here is the issue, or if it's going through a USB port on this particular system that's causing the latency; in any case, I thought I' put this out there for anyone else giving it a go and running into problems; you're not the only one. :P
