Looking for a USB modem for a Windows 7 laptop to remote into a CS1000 rls 4.5. Any recommendations?

RE: USB modems

I've found that a U S Robotics one I was given works well on my old Windows 7 Laptop.

RE: USB modems

I was given a HIRO V.92 56K USB modem. Was able to connect but was getting garbage using putty. Any thoughts?

RE: USB modems

if you are getting garbage, you probably have the wrong baud or stop bits. check you setting on the modem. and the terminal type.

RE: USB modems

I currently use a Windows XP desktop with internal modem. Trying replace it with a Windows 7 using a USB modem. Ive been able to connect using the xp machine to a us robotics modem at the switch end successfully. When I go to use the 7 laptop and USB modem, I connect but only receive a bunch of o’s when I type. I’ve changed the settings on the putty connection but still get the o’s.

RE: USB modems

I know an note that this type of modem has problem with 64 - bit OS
