"PCTel modems are winmodems. The install program (setup.exe) doesn't work, so you have to rely on Windows being able to detect the modem. If the modem was previously installed and there's an irq conflict, you can't resolve it unless you know which irq the modem was previously using. You then have to change the other device's irq. The modem can't be reconfigured to another

"After filling out page after page of quesionairres and giving out my e-mail address, I was finally able to start downloading the driver I thought I needed. It turns out this system file does nothing to install an actual sound driver. WHAT A BIG WASTE OF MY TIME. I should have gone straight to Dell to download a "hassle-free" driver that WORKS!!!!"
