I am currently going to use a 56k til I get my cable installed on my new PC. I have bought 2 56k modems so far that are not compatable with my XP Pro and they do not install correctly. Can you guys tell me what modem to get that is around $40?

Have you tried moving it to another PCI slot? Also, did your zoom modem come with drivers? Try those instead. You might have to install their software before you actually install the modem. -- Paul
macklin01 said:I think it's most likely a modem-mobo incompatibility, and not an OS problem. Same was true with my Shuttle mobo and certain Zoom modems. I"m sorry to say it, but your cheapest solution will be to get a different modem from a bigger company, probably best from USR, if it's an internal modem, or any external USB modem. Sorry. Good luck! -- Paul
