I have an older USR Sportster. It is not eligible.. near
as I can figure.. for v92. Are there any other driver or firmware upgrades for this either at USR or 3rd party?

I have been having a few operational problems lately.

There was a firmware developed by third-party (in Russia) for USR Courier & Sportsters, but I don't know if it's available on the net now.

Aloha! Richard.
