      If you still have the Motorola modem(s) here’s some info on making them work with XP:

      http://www.motorola.com/softmodem/data-fax-voice.htm#DFVwinXP

      However, unless you have some, I wouldn’t recommend going out and buying any since they are out of the modem biz. And prob haven’t spent any time or money on XP drivers. See:

      http://www.vee90.net/xp/winxp_sm56_problems.html

      This is a caveat and info about using a Dell driver which seems to be usable.

      If all else fails and you are going to buy modems, check the specs for XP compatibality.

      Good Luck

      Here’s another workaround. Some of your existing modems may have a Rockwell or Conextant chip – if so, you can get a driver for them from:

      http://members.cnx.net/reboot/modems/

      This page has some cheesy popups, but once you get past them, there is a lot of good info and XP drivers for about every modem.

      If all else fails and you are going to buy modems, be sure they have an XP compliant note on the material with them.

      Didn’t specify laptops or desktops..

      Laptops – Always a good solid brand that works – Xircom

      Desktops – Forget internal modems, go with an external sportster 33.6 / 56k modem. They work in all os’s and if by the wierd chance they get fried, unplug old one, ship it for a replacement and plug new one in it’s spot immediately.

      This is not likely a modem problem.
      You may verify this by installing one to another computer (if you have one such).

      Things to try:
      Make sure it is connected to the plug that is labeled ?Line? ? for obvious reason.
      Disable Serial port B (or 2) in BIOS ? this may not be a critical issue but who knows?
      Make sure the modem is seating tight ? common mistake.
      Install it in a different slot ? could be HW conflict.
      Replace the phone cable ? connection might be loose or just bad cable.
      Connect the cable to a phone jack in other location ? might be bad connection.
      Scan for virus and remove them if found.
      Remove spyware/adware if found.
      Clean install Windows.
      Replace the motherboard.
