Is it true that PCI software modems dont work in the 2K setting?
By the way anyone tried USB modems, and are they good?
thanks.

No, this would not be true, you just have to have drivers for the particular modem that you have. I have a SM56 Motorola PCI software modem, and it works just fine in W2K, but Motorola does make the drivers for W2K. Just look at the companies web site to see if they make W2K drivers for your particular software modem.

Yea but just because a company makes win 2000 drivers for their product, doesn't mean they'll be compatible with every system configuration.. I have 2000 complaint drivers for my soundcard and everytime i turn on sound in ME and 2000, my system freezes.. Yet I never get that problem in 98SE.

My Phoebe WM (with a Lucent chipset) works fine in Win2K. Windows recognized and installed it with no problems.

Although I do get slightly slower connection speeds than I did under 98SE.

The correct answhere would be: THEY WORK on w2k. But it depends on specific modem, do they have drivers for w2k.
w2k has a PnP support, Its not a matter of OS
