The SDSL and IDSL Network Extender Kits don’t require software. In fact, they almost don’t require configuration or control at all. The one exception is the data rate at which they operate.
Each provider unit has one DIP switch that you can use to control this function. At installation time, you can try the highest available data rate, and if the provider and subscriber units fail to link at that rate, just step down to the next and try again. You can keep doing this until you reach a data rate at which the units can communicate successfully.
The IDSL Network Extenders are designed for networks that will send only a low volume of data across the DSL link. You can set these extenders for either 128 or 144 kbps, which is double the top V.90 modem speed and the equal or better of ISDN. (Plus it’s all on your own equipment, so you don’t have to
