    If you have a driver disk with XP drivers on it then update the drivers through Device Manager.

    Track down their website and see if they have any XP drivers available. If not you'll need to email or call them to see if they're going to develop XP drivers for your modem.

    I,m usins the same modem. It was recognised by XP Home Ed
    and it's using Microsoft drivers 5.0.0.2 , which shipped with XP,
    though it did work for me on earlier install of XP with generic
    2000 drivers. When I originally ran the Hardware checking prog,
    bfore getting XP it did highlight it as potential conflict, but
    knowing Msoft, maybe I got lucky??!!

    I forgot to say My modem is in PCI slot 5 and IRQ 11.
    In Device Manager under the diagnostics tab what happens when you press the Query Modem button

    I use a Diamond Modem and had the same probs, then I was told that XP installs it's own drivers (Generic) and you have to go into your modem disc... load and select (on Device manager) the driver that discribes your modem.
    Now I only have the problem of the modem dialing after 3-4 attempts.but at least it works eventually.

    yeah.......in the modem settings u can switch between these two
    "best best data fax modem"
    or
    Generic 56K HCF Data Fax Modem.

    i cant run windows update.....coz the modem aint workin...LOL

    Conexant modem drivers

    Have you been to www.bestdata.com yet?
    Their Tech support page has a compatibilityy list.
    Most of their pci ones are XP compatible.
    Conexants home page advises using theirs as STOP GAP
    only. ps, I know this message is probably stating the obvious.........
