    I have Wondows 7. 1) Will this product work for me 2) Are installation/setup instructions included? 3) Will I need any other equipment to use this device? 4) Can I plug into ANY USB port or must it be a high speed (2X) port? Thanks

    • A. Yes, I am using Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit SP1 and it works for me. It comes with installation disk and instructions, plus a 6' telephone cord. You will need at least a scanner to send faxes. I have an old HP 4240 3-in-one that works, but there are many new models out under $75 that Fax-Scan-Copy and Print from HP and others. In the long run, you would be best off buying the model with the cheapest ink cartridges. Yes, you plug it into your regular USB outlet. Wally

    • A. 1. Product is compatible with Windows XP through Windows 8. 2. instructions should be included if product was unopened. 3. you need a phone line to attach modem to the phone jack. You need phone service through land line. dependingon your phone service plan, you may need long distance depending on where you dial to fax or to an internet provider if used for internet connection. 4. USB 2.0 is recommended for just about any new usb device. I'm not sure on this but it should still work if it is not 2.0 or 3.0. BUT DON'T QUOTE ME. maybe if you don't have 2.0 or higher, you should report back here to let all of the rest know who are wondering the same thing. if it don't work, no big deal... just return it and say it don't work for your system and get your money back!

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    Having Windows 8, had to get help from support to determine which driver to use since the default driver was not working. They walked me through the process which installed an alternative driver that did work. Following this, the fax modem worked perfectly. Have used it a half dozen times since with no problems.

    This product started right up on my window 64 bit 8.1. It did all the things it was suppose to do. But it kept saying busy line or no dial tone. You must have an analog phone system for it to work. Will not work on digital. I have package deal with phone, tv and internet, so I could not change. But worth the money if your phone is analog.

    'Got this for my somewhat newer laptop to be used where I have no ethernet connection (which was the only connection my newer laptop would take). It provides a means for a dial-up internet connection. Dial-up is, itself, very slow. Either I have forgotten how slow dial-up is or this device makes dial-up slower than I remember. It's probably just that I forgot how slow dial-up is. In any case, the device works. So if you have a telephone but no internet and are patient, this device can give you dial-up internet -- and fax. This brand is about one-half the cost of another brand and seems to work just fine - for what it is!

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    After having attempted to install this on my Windows 7 system multiple times without getting any start up wizard on every attempt I contacted tech support and after seven or eight communications back and forth complete with photo's I was finally able to send a fax with this. The set-up instructions are very vague.

    When I received the product, it was obvious that it had been opened. To me this indicates that it was used. Furthermore, parts of the product were missing. Fortunately, I already owned the missing part. However, the product is not working as promised. when I find time, I will probably return the product.

    The modem works well after the driver is installed. The software that accompanies the modem will not work for Windows 7. I got in touch with the company and located the driver on their website, downloaded and installed it, and the modem works well. If you are not computer savvy and you have Windows 7, you will not be able to use the modem.

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    I plugged it into my new Dell win8 laptop. The laptop recognized it right away and got a dial tone right away. This only flaw I found is that I need to plug it into one of the 2.0 USB ports not the 3.0 ports.
