    what modem to use

    Can some one tell me what modems will work w/a Dell Optiplex GSa desktop (266mhz)2.1GB
    I tried a 56K Mach 2, but it does'nt seem to work. I just need a simple modem so that I can go online, nothing fancy.

    it should work. Have you installed the drivers for it?
    If so does the modem diagnostics test, test ok in control panel?

    Yes I did install the drivers and it does respond to the diagnostic test, but when I try to connect I get an error message saying that the modem does not respond and to check to see if it is connected. I know the line is good because I use another computer on the same line, but not at the time IM trying to connect.

    Well gee, I figure this is the correct forum, since the heading is for feed back and suggestions pertaining to Hardware, and the last time I checked a modem is hardware, but thanks for your input

    actually, upon closer inspection, I'm sure you would notice that under the under the feedback/suggestions link on this page, the following caption. It says "Discuss any suggestions, comments, etc that you might have for the HardwareCentral site."
