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.

How do I hook up my DSL modem to my old computer? I have an HP Pavilion Samsung SyncMaster 750s DESKTOP PC. I need to access the internet on my PC but it doesn't have an ETHERNET JACK. I also no longer...

Which HP Pavilion do you have? The Samsung SyncMaster 750s is your monitor. What OS is it running?

Most desktops that came with Windows 95-XP have a few PCI slots inside the box. Computers with Windows 98 (some with Windows 95B) have USB ports. (Older computers may also have ISA slots inside the box.)

If you have a USB port, you can use a USB to ethernet adapter. This will be limited to the speed of your USB (not a good choice if you have USB 1.1). The wired versions are limited to 10/100 Mbs maximum internet speeds. There are some wireless versions as well. See for examples of wired adapters.

A better choice is the internal one. Again you need to check the specs for your computer and see if there are any available slots and the type on the motherboard. See HP support for the specs of the computer. Slim case formats often have few available slots. (You can usually remove the internal dial-up modem and replace it with the ethernet card.)

These are either wireless and wired. Some run at 1Gbs speed. You will also need a wireless router if you use a wireless card. (A router is a good idea even for a wired ethernet card. It provides protection against some internet problems.) A few PCI wired ethernet are available here: . Turn off the computer and unplug the wires to the computer. Open the case, remove the slot cover (or card that you will replace), push the new card into the slot and secure it. Then close the computer and connect your wires. Install the drivers (usually from a CD that will come with the card or by downloading from the manufacturer's site).Then plug an 8-wire RJ-45 cable into the jack and your broadband modem. Then set up following the directions for your ethernet system (dynamic (DHCP) or static IP address, etc). (Wireless networks you install the antenna for the card and then follow the setup instructions for your wireless router. This will include the password.)

I hope this helps.

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!!

Other device PCI modem is yellow

If you want the hardware, look in back of your PC and it will be the slot with the telephone jacks. To rremove it, unscrew and unplug it. If you mean how to locate it in the system, right-click My Computer, properties/hardware/devicemanager, and the modem will be somewhere in the list. Good luck.

Need download cd for modem/soundcard

Hi, You can try & proceed to HP website ( and go to the Software & Driver Downloads (left side near the bottom). You have to determine the specif model/version of your HP computer which might look something like "HP Pavilion 4550Z" From initial indications you would be looking for an Internal Modem/Sound Card that was originally set for Windows 98SE. Chances are that it is a Conexant or Rockwell SoftK56 Data,Fax PCI Modem, with Master Riptide PCI Audio Device. Post back should you need additional information. State your PC's model. Good luck and kind regards.
