Smartusb56 modem crashes vista home basic when i try to connect to internet

I recently purchased a newer computer (yet to arrive) but i discovered it does not have a dial up modem (dial up only available in my area) so i bought a (supposedly) vista compatable usb modem and am testing it out on my laptop before the new pc arrives.

However after i install the driver (even updated to a newer one), when i try to connect to the internet, i get a blue screen and the system reboots itself. The modem itself plays the dial tone, but none of the connection sounds.

If i leave the line connected, i can hear a message saying "the number you have reached cannot be completed as dialed..."

If i unplug the the line from the modem, the modem eventually shuts off once windows has re-loaded.

My smartusb56 external modem don't work on windows 7, it came with cd on it driver for windows vista which i installed correctly and when trying to connect on internet with the modem i get blue error...


Open the cd drive in windows explorer and right click the installer. Click the "compatibility" tab and in the Compatibility mode tab, check the box and select windows vista from the dropdown menu. Click OK and try to install the driver again. If this dosent work, modems are incredibly cheap, you would probably be better off just buying a new one.

USR5610c Modem On Hold feature not Vista compatable/does not work


Hi there.
Basically what you have been told is correct, the reason is that the modem card is old hardware and the Vista operating system does not support it in the driver cab or even if you do a Microsoft update.
Your not probably going to able to get a driver for Vista so there is no point chasing them you would have to go and purchase a Vista compatible PCI modem card for you to get your internet connectivity.
If you was using XP there would be a chance you could get a driver for the existing card but the way things stand you have no choice but to purchase a Vista compatible card.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Wi-Fi isn't working


This could be a duplex issue. When you log into the belkin does is assign you an IP address? Have you used a ballpoint pen to reset the EMTA since you have connected the router?
