USR 56k Modem does lock Dial Up Prog

By mtolgay ·
Why does my 3COM/U.S. Robotics Modem (White, made in Romania) lock up the Windows provided Dial-Up prog (this happened while using 2k Pro & XP PRO), so that I have to wait about 1 - 2 minutes to re-dial to my ISP. This never occurs when I use a Linux distribution. So why does it lock up the Dial-Up prog ?

Hi and noncompatible drivers to 2K and especially XP will do it every time.
You need to find the specific drivers for XP and hope somone has written them, same with 2K.
I hope this helps.

Your modem has a model number, white from Romania is not sufficiant. Find the number and download the correct driver.
