    It DOES work with windows 7 (64-bit)/BEST MODEM!

    Customer review by MissDesire

    5.0 stars by MissDesire

    I have windows 7 (64-bit) and it works perfectly. I plugged it in, and it automatically installed the driver for the modem. The little CD included wasn't need at all. The price was excellent, too. It's small in size and won't clutter up your desk. If you're looking for a dial-up modem, this is the BEST one. :)

    This was exactly what I was looking for! I needed the flexible usb plug since my last one snapped when i accidently hit it against my table. The low price was truly bang for your buck!

    Works perfectly with Windows 8

    Customer review by MasterJam007

    5.0 stars by MasterJam007

    I was a little concerned when I read other reviews that said it wouldn't work with Windows 8, but decided to try it anyhow. For work, there's one FTP connection I have to use that only works over dialup (yeah I know, seems a little archaic). Like a lot of current machines, my new Win8 laptop doesn't have a modem. Although the list of supported OSes on the package does not include Windows 8, I found that the modem was immediately recognized when I plugged it into an available USB port. In fact, I originally thought it failed - there was no pop-up indicating that drivers were being installed or "new device found". But when I opened Control Panel and checked devices, there it was - no driver installation required! I created a new connection for the modem by opening Control Panel and clicking "View network status and tasks" under the "Network and Internet" heading and then "Set up a new connection or network". This opened a properties dialog that is similar to the dialog in previous operating system versions. I simply copied details over from my previous system. I changed a few of the properties settings: 1) on the Options tab, I clicked "Display progress while connecting" and 2) on the Sharing tab, I cleared all checkboxes under Internet Connection Sharing. By doing this - particularly the first box ("Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection") - your dialup connection won't interfere with your primary broadband connection. The easiest way to launch the new connection is to click the connection status icon in the notification area of the taskbar, which opens a list of all available connections. Click the modem connection and then the Connect button - disconnects the same way. It works perfectly - seems just as fast as the internal modem in my old system. The only thing that's different is that there's no sound. Although I was disappointed by this initially, it's not a huge deal since my FTP client tells me when it's connected (approx. 10 seconds) and a little connection status dialog gets updated during the connection process. The modem itself is small - about 2 and a half inches long and 3/4 inch wide - takes up virtually no space in my laptop bag.

    • Yes is does. Make sure you setup the USB modem according to the Operating system you have. It is critical that you install the Win 7 64 bit setup .exe file or the Win 7 32 bit setup.exe file. Otherwise it will not install correctly.

    • i'm running windows 7 ultimate and it worked fine with the laptop but there is a problem with my towers version of windows fax and scan. you have to use windows fax and scan to fax with win 7 , with win xp you can use the fax software through your multiuse printer or some of the older programs that have their own fax software.

    • this product only gets you connected to your internet service provider and therefore does not by itself have any fees. However to get onto the internet, you will need to pay for a service. There are a few free services like NetZero that work well, but the free services are usually limited in amount of data volume.

    • You plug your phone line into the phone jack port on this, then you plug this into your USB port. If you're using dial-up, this has nothing to do with your Ethernet ports.

    • The short answer is no. Yes Phone and Ethernet cables look similar but they are not compatible with each other. An Ethernet card and modem are entirely different and connecting the cords could damage some equipment if hooked up improperly. Basically there are three choices to solve the problem Buy: an external modem, get DSL service, OR get cable internet.
