USB modem HiRo model H50113 will not complete phone connection
I installed modem as per instructions, used the CD driver as asked for.
Trouble shoot says the modem is operating properly
When I try to dial a mumber from Outlook contacts, seems to activate, but I get an telephone operater saying I can not complete number as dialed.
Seems maybe the dialing properties must need adjustment

Ok, so I tried the modem on a new Dell (C2D laptop), WinXp, USB 2.0, with the XP drivers supplied from the CD, and I still get the same result. Sadly, this is either a defective modem, or yet another driver issue that hasn't been resolved. In any case, I ended up downloading a program called PhoneTray Free which is a Caller ID/Telemarketer Zapper program. This works quite nicely with the FaxTalk software supplied with the Hiro modem. Basically, I can eliminate a number of the 1:30 messages by having the PhoneTray software ZAP the calls on the first ring automatically if they are a blacklisted number. Hopefully, this helps.
Dialup phone lines usually only transmit a minimum of 8 Baud. NetZero's high speed (5X) faster is done by caching pages you have already visited, not actially running internet but loading pages faster on your computer. Check your modem setting, 56k, 112K are normal speed setting to connect. Check your actual connection speed, 28.8 is probably all that you are getting on dialup.
That modem has an Agere chipset. I think you should try a more recent driver. I believe the current one is 184.108.40.206 (November 2007). The driver .INF files allow the modem responses to be properly interpreted. If you can't find a recent version on Hiro's site, try another vendor's site. Encore USA also makes modems with the Agere chipset. After installing the driver you will want to add "AT+VCID=1" as an advanced setup string for the modem (via control panel phone & modem options applet).
