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.

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.........

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
