SM56 Modem and Windows XP

SM56 MODEM Working under Windows XP (56k) by dfgp
Posted: 4 Nov 01

I did as follows:
0. Uninstall modem (Hardware and driver).
1. Install the card into a different PCI slot. Install the W2000 drivers for the speakerphone modem; they didn't work.
2. RUN regedit.exe and erase ALL the strings under "motorola" and "sm56". However, the system don't allow me to wipe out part of it (The PCI device settings, they are in use)
3. RESET the PC and go to the "My PC/properties/hardware/hardware manager/modem > UPDATE controller" tabs.
4. UPDATE with SM56 DATA FAX (NO VOICE) w2000 drivers.
5. Modem working!! and 56k (In fact i posted this using it)
