Information about specific modems

This section gives additional information about specific modems that are supported by Network Connections. For a list of supported modems, see Support resources.

Characteristics of specific modems

Modems supported by Network Connections do not necessarily work in all modes with other modems on the list of compatible modems.

For example, some V.32bis modems do not work with port speeds of 14,400 bps although they communicate at a modem-to-modem speed of 14,400 bps. If your V.32bis modem does not work at an initial speed of 14,400 bps, you should change the speed to 19,200 bps. For information about changing initial modem speed, see Configure a modem for a dial-up connection for a dial-up connection.

Internal modems

Certain internal modems cannot be automatically detected. You must install the modem manually through Control Panel.


Modems supported as server modems may not support callback when used as client modems.
