I bought this modem as I wanted caller id support on my PC. I do not intend to use it as a dial up modem.

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.

Having recently bought a Netbook for use when travelling I discovered it does not have a dial-up modem installed as standard which is fine as long as travelling where there is WiFi access. However most of my travelling is in locations where WiFi is not always readily available so a dial-up connection has to be made.
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 claims to support Caller ID. It may do in the US - it doesn't in the UK. I bought it purely on the basis that it offered that support. A waste of money for me - does anyone want a perfectly useable USB modem that doesn't support BT SIN227 Caller ID?

I wanted a basic dial-up modem to use as a back up if my broadband router should fail for any reason.
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.

I bought this because my new computer does not have a dial-up modem. There were no instructions whatsoever and no manufacturer's name. My Windows 7 Home Premium Edition loaded a driver automatically but when trying to connect had a message saying 'hardware failure' with an error code being given. I tried extensively to get it to work with help from the Internet but with no success. I had to admit defeat and so it was returned. The only good thing about this order was the excellent return service from Amazon. A full refund was received.

This is a basic, straightforward USB-powered and USB-connected dial-up modem. It comes with a cable to connect to a standard UK phone socket. The other end plugs directly into the computer USB port. It installs easily, and it works with Vista. It has one LED on the front which is off if it's not available, on if it is available, and flashing on-off if it's communicating. I use it as a back-up in case of broadband failure, and I test it every month or so. No problem - simple, efficient and cheap.

I had this working fine until I had to rebuild my PC. After rebuild, nothing I did could get the hardware and Software (Windows 7 Fax & Scan) to recognise one another. Other people tried for me but could not get the set-up configured. The Software started and displayed all the correct settings/cover pages/address Books and the PC said the Hardware was functioning. I could not force the installation of the drivers from the disc (as I did originally)

If like me you are having to rely on reviews to understand this products features please bear in mind whilst Windows 7 64 bit Windows Update WILL locate device drivers Windows 7 does not support voice calling and all 3rd party software I could locate were incompatible. Poor rating reflects Amazons inadequate description. For dial up and fax or voice on older operating systems this may be perfect, but if you bought a computer within the last few years and don't want to pay extra for VOIP to use your PC headset to make calls please save your time... Microsoft have decided this is obsolete. Frustration could easily be avoided with full product spec, I have to say a common gripe I have with Amazon in general.
