Hello. I don't have a problem. :blink: I just want to ask. I inherited this piece of hardware, ADC Telecom DATASMART 696. Apparently it is, at the very least, a high speed modem. And I was just wondering, what can I do with it? And why is it so expensive? I don't have any cords for it, so that only thing I can do is run self-diagnostic. Thank you. :whistling:

from my research that isn't really a broadband modem...it's a t1 csu/dsu device and it's used to connect to a T1 frame relay line...a T1 is basically a business class DSL line with 1.54 Mb of traffic and a frame relay is a method of controlling traffic (very base info you don't need to know more...but if you want...google t1 and frame relay)....what YOU can do with it...assuming you're a home user...is maybe sell it on ebay...or...well probably nothing
