PowerBook Modem Updates

Director of Technical Services, Baka Industries Inc.

Apple has announced the release of two software updates to address problems PowerBook owners have experienced with their modems. The new Express Modem 1.5.4 software is for users of the Apple Express Modem with System 7.5; the other is for PowerBook 150 owners.

Version 1.5.4 of the Express Modem software eliminates the problem that caused a PowerBook running System 7.5 to crash on restart if there were faxes waiting to go out.

The new PowerBook 150 Update 1.0 software corrects a problem with the original modem-handling abilities of the PowerBook 150 that caused any internal modem to continue to use battery power even when it was not in use. Global Village released a new version of their PowerPort software several weeks ago that prevented the problem from occurring, but it only supports the company's own PowerPort modems.

Both updates are available on AppleLink, or on the Internet via FTP in:
