configure modem help

I have a US Robotics FaxModem working in windows but fails to connect to
Cisco2621. I set aux 0 with all parameter I could find but the route
does not recognize it.

Shoud usr_sportster be the right one to choose on router? Is there any
other way I can look at it?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Not clear for what application you intend to use this modem - dialout?
Dialin? Both? Character mode? PPP? Both?

Here's some links that may be useful to you:

As far as using the Sportster - historically it's been one of the best
consumer-grade external analog modems around, but it seems that recently
I've seen fairly frequent cases where, in dialin applications,
it tends to forget what DTE speed it wants to use, rendering it
marginally useful for that case. (If you only need it for low speed
dialin, I've found that it works to lock its DCE rate to 9600 bps then
configure its DTE speed to follow DCE speed.)

Good luck,

Aaron

I need dial-in, but no matter what I do, the router does shake hand with
modem.

I am at dead end.

Can you reverse telnet to the Sportster and get an OK response to your AT?

If you dial your answer line, does it ring?

If you configure both originate and answer modems for, say, V.32, do they train?
