Plugging in the modem windows did not find the modem drivers automatically for me. The supplied CDSetup.exe didn't install the drivers either. I had to hunt down into the drivers folder to get the drivers to install. I could then do an update driver on it via the modem properties, where windows did find a newer driver.
The caller id side of it didn't work for me by default either. Some expermintation via HyperTerminal confirmed it does support it. I tried a few windows caller id repair utilities that didn't work for me. In the end I got caller id to work by supplying #CID=1 in the extra initialization parameters under the modem properties, so that was OK in the end.
The biggest problem I am having is that if I leave the USB modem plugged in my PC won't boot up. It hangs on the Windows logo part of the booting process. This essentially makes it redundant for me. I don't want to have to keep pluggin in the modem each time I reboot.
So if anyone has any ideas on what is causing it to hang, or has got it working on Vista 64 bit (My PC is an Aspire T180 AMD 64 dual core if that makes a difference) then please add your comment.
In summary, because of the setup problems and the booting problems I am only giving it 2 stars.
True this type of connection does seem very slow if trying to access websites or downloading large files but at least it keeps me with essential contact with my email. The fact that it is powered by the USB port is also a great advantage when travelling as is its small size.
This device does what it says on the tin and for a very low price so comes highly recommended.
Note that I am using it for pure dial-up connection and did not load any of the s/w supplied for fax use etc so cannot comment on the extra features.....but for what I need it for its great.
This fits the bill perfectly.It's easy to install and is straightforward to use.
Everything that it should be.It may only be used very occasionally,but it works.Good for the price.Can't fault it.
