That's helpful to know. Thank you.

Actually it's mentioned on alot of winlink related sites. I just checked.

I'll have to dust off my 66 mhz 486, running DOS, with one of those older
eprom burner ISA cards from Needham, and burn myself some new eproms :)

What I'll do is upgrade the firmware, then try the 'HPOLL OFF' mode
again and see if it makes any difference. If not, then I guess I have
no choice but to go the polling route.

Thanks again for the info. Much appreciated.
