Got an email this morning that brings some good news for ISDN users! It said this:

The smallest ISDN USB Terminal Adapter (miniVigor128) in the market now supports BeOS !

The web site gives this description:

The Draytek miniVigor128 is a great little USB ISDN Terminal Adaptor. It is compatible with all Basic Rate ISDN lines, including ISDN2e and BT’s Highway. It’s much smaller than the photo above, measuring just 78mm x 41m x 20mm. The miniVigor128 is ideal for any Internet activity.

The BeOS driver is here. Hope that makes someone’s weekend a good one. :)

    Re: dead

    I Live in Sundsvall in north Sweden inded i almost everyone have a T3 10Mbit in living room for about
    $20 in month..

    i have a ADSL line for same price..

    I work as sysadmin at a company building optical fibre network solutions.


    I also have my server on a 1Gbit GSR on a optical interface..


    ISDN is truly dead in this part of world..
    Maybe we are in frontline here ?!

    ACTUALLY, i know some people that still use single line ISDN because its the best thing in their area … THen again they live in isreal ;-)

    But they don’t use Beos, they’ve tried it and didn’t like it … Problems with languages was a main reason i believe.

    But, back to the subject, there are still people around that use it, but i do have to agree with you … cable or DSL is the way to go (depending on wether your town gets a DSL provider that can actually stay in business).

    My parents still use ISDN while they await DSL.

    Dead or not, the fact that a hardware manufacturer is writing drivers for BeOS, is great. We need to encourage them to do so, not go “ah, who cares”.

    We need to take anything they give us :)

    Not dead

    Well, I’m not sure about you, but where I live it isn’t dead — not everyone lives near cutting edge centers of technology! My family considered ISDN since we didn’t have DSL in our area (this was less than a year ago). And we live in the suburbs!!!

    I live in Israel, and have a DSL connection over a year now. :)

    Re: dead

    Well… perhaps you should consider things like that before you post what appears almost elitist nonsense…

    Here in Australia, very few people have ISDN, less have DSL, very few have ADSL, cable is growing but is still sparse.. and the majority of users are still using landline phone/modem combinations…

    Your country is way out of the ordinary - I remember a friend mentioning how good it was to be a university student in Sweden…

    ISDN, btw, is not dead.. the technology is still useful and very prevalent in many places…

    If this helps people, why feel the need to rubbish it eh?

    Its not in their area then, they bitch about it continously :)

    This is a good thing

    No matter how you look at it, this is a good thing. In the forums, there have been several people trying to get ISDN working in one form or another. The fact they wrote a BeOS driver is fantastic.
