Can a Conexant modem from a Vista pc be added to a pc that runs XP?
Yes, but you must find the driver for it. XP has gotten pretty good at finding these on the Internet, but if you are installing it i imagine you need it for the internet... If possible look at the modem in the vista computer via device manager and find out what model it is.Then you can go to the manufacturer site to get it. Or you can check the computer manufacturer site and see if they list a XP driver. There is also a slight chance that XP will automatically load the modem when you install it.
To see device manager in Vista, click start, right click on "Computer" and select properties. In the upper left corner of the windows that opens you will see a link to Device Manager. In that list you will see a group called "Modems" Click the plus next to it and it should list the model of the modem in the vista machine.
