The DAX is an internal, plug-n-play, 56K modem for Win 9x and
NT. It comes with a detailed user-friendly manual, with instructions on how to
install the modem. It also explains how to install OOPS iDial 2.1 and BitWare
software, which come bundled with it. However, it lacks AT command reference and
troubleshooting information.

The
software bundle comes in two floppies and a CD-ROM. OOPS iDial is a neat
software to manage your Internet account. You can specify your Internet account
details, and the software will keep dialing until it gets connected. The CD also
has drivers for the modem and is loaded with tons of software like BitWare 3.3,
IE 5, Media Ring Talk 99, Netscape Communicator 4.6, Eudora Lite, and many more.
We tried sending faxes through the accompanying BitWare software, and it worked
quite smoothly.

During our test, the modem gave stable connects, and at one
point of time gave us a throughput of 3.27 kbps. It’s a good buy for its price
and comes with a warranty of three years. However, we missed the connectors for
microphone and speaker, which are pretty common in modems these days.
