Why do you want an extermal modem?
USR makes good products and all modems are supposed to be compatable with today's OSs.
I need to purchase another Serial external dial-up modem for a new PC with Windows XP Home and Linux operating systems.
My Zoom serial external modem with the latest updates when installing will get a notice from XP that continuing the installating will cause harm to my computer now or later.This modem will stay on my old PC.
I have found a US Robitics serial modem 56k v.92 part # usr5686e that shows to be Windows compatible.
Does any one have knowledge about the Robotics modem is it really compatible and will it eliminate the pop up from Windows about harm to my computer.
Where can I search in Microsoft to find compatible modems? I am unable to find a compatibility chart.
