U.S. ROBOTICS ANNOUNCES SHARED ACCESS MODEM SHARING KIT VERSION 1.5

 U.S. ROBOTICS ANNOUNCES SHARED ACCESS MODEM SHARING KIT VERSION 1.5
 SKOKIE, Ill., Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. Robotics, Inc. (NASDAQ: USRX), today announced Modem Sharing Kit(TM) Version 1.5 (MSK 1.5). Shared Access Modem Sharing Kits allow for the pooling of modems on the LAN so that any user can dial out and access remote host computers, bulletin boards and information services such as Lexis/Nexis, Westlaw and CompuServe. In addition, remote users can dial in to the LAN through the shared modems to run applications and transfer files. LAN managers using Shared Access Modem Sharing Kits will save money by sharing one or two modems for all users on the LAN instead of buying a modem and phone line for every desktop workstation.
 With MSK 1.5, users get added flexibility through a new "PCs Available" menu that enables them to choose which PC they want to control at the time of connection. With earlier versions, only a single PC could act as host with a dedicated connection.
 The newly enhanced MSK 1.5 upgrade contains the innovative Host PC Pooling feature allowing up to 20 PCs on the LAN to be accessed as the host PC at any one time. "The 'PCs Available' menu makes MSK 1.5 ideal for both large and small corporations because we've made it easy for every dial-in user to remotely take control of their own PC," said Gordon Reichard, product manager-systems products. "As soon as remote users connect to the LAN, they see a list of PCs from which to choose. Select the PC, hit enter, and you're in control of that PC. It couldn't be simpler. Now the Modem Sharing Kit supports every person on the LAN."
 Modem Sharing Kit Version 1.5 consists of one or two V.32bis modems, cabling, On-the-LAN communications software for dialing out of the LAN, modem sharing software for resource sharing. Off-Site communications software for remote users to dial in, and easy-to-understand documentation. The kits are complete, preconfigured solutions requiring virtually no on-going support by the LAN administrator.
 MSK 1.5 software, available in late October, will be included in all Modem Sharing Kits. A free upgrade will be available to all current Modem Sharing Kit users. The Shared Access Modem Sharing Kit Single Port lists for $995; the Dual Port (two modems) lists for $1,595. The kits are available through U.S. Robotics' more than 5,000 computer dealers and value-added resellers.
