Hmm I don't know?
He said the modem worked fine, so the UART must
have been working fine. I'd say the UART on any
bog standard 486 is fine.
Might be a problem with the speed the ISDN TA
detects or selects on the serial line. If it's
autoselecting the speed then make sure that both
sides specify a particular speed. Or more likely
the speed for the serial interface on the ISDN TA
is set to 9600 or something. Usually the external
TAs will have an LCD and a couple of buttons where
you can change this.
