what is XE3 circa 2002, 15 years young. wow.
XP is now 3 years dead, at microsoft.
why not at least upgrade to Win7. be wise to do that.
XP must have SP3, if not it will fail, and even with it it fail.
lots of USB devices for example will fail. here.
dial up, you dont run DSL.
ive not see dial up in 20 years. why dial up.?
if compelled to use dial up, you need a modem that XP understands
most of them it does not. nor will it ever,
there are 2 classes of modem. (DIAL up to POTS)
1: software modem (99% software, and a box) they SUX. all do.
2: hardware modem, best is USB. by
and A good dial up program,. windows dial up software stinks.
i see this is HP supported (was) modem
Agere systems soft PCI
it needs the HP.com driver to run that modem
does the number you dial buy hand (using a POTS phone)
dial up and answer and squeal? if not its hopeless that number
you need to pay for superscription service, and with a pass word.
THE PROBLEM IS HP NO LONGER SUPPORTS YOUR PC
SO THERE ARE NO DRIVERS. now.
why not get 10 year or newer PC, or get DSL to home
or cable modem with only 1 channel active, (slow like dialup)
for cheap. (im using 16channel now, as i type)
or buy a new modem and connect it and use the new modems
disk to install a nice dialer for you.
but finding one is not easy now.
the best modems, are Hayes, there hardware modems are like rock. i used them back in the ARPnet days and on amocat.
