I had the hardest time finding a dialup modem in my local computer shop. Kids today don't know that back in the olden times we used to use analog telephones to DIAL UP to other computers in the world! CompuServe, Prodigy, even the good ol' BBS's of yesteryear..... All accessed by plain old telephone lines! spent 5 minutes talking to the kid at my local store and trying to explain that I didn't want a cable modem, and I didn't want a DSL modem. I wanted a dialup modem. He looked confused. When I tried to explain that you plug it into the phone line he said "Yeah, that's DSL"... *facepalm* no kid. it's not.
Anyway, This modem did just the trick. Plugged it into the USB port on the somewhat new PC running Windows 7 Po 64 bit Windows recognized it right away, and I didn't even need to install drivers. Tested it over my VoIP line, and was able to dial into the local Juno modem pool no problem.
I got a laugh at the Q&A's her eon amazon about "can you dial into the internet with it" and people saying "No".... Must be the same kid at the store I tried to sell me a DSL modem.
By all means you can use this to dial into an local Internet Provider, as long as they have access to a dialin pool. It's not DSL, not Broadband. But if you're a 98 year old grandmother who wants to get emails from her grandkids, it'll do just what you need!
If you have Windows 8 or 8.1, I recommend this modem because it comes with software that works on Windows 8.1.
The drivers that come on the included CD will not load in Windows 8.1. They are for Windows 7 and an error message is returned. However, Windows 8.1 found the modem and installed drivers for it as soon as I plugged it into a USB 2.0 port. If you plug it into a USB 3.0 port, it may not work. It didn't on mine. However, after plugging it into a USB 2.0 port the drivers loaded properly and it worked. I then plugged it back into the USB 3.0 port and it keeps working.
Kudos to Rosewill support for rapidly sending me another RNX-56USB after a brief conversation. Same problem. Apparently the entry system's modem/software requires full hardware handshaking. I dug up an old Hayes Accura modem - success!
Returned Amazon's modem a bit wiser and appreciative of both Amazon and Rosewill's excellent support.
I have deducted one star because in my limited testing, I was unable to successfully get Caller ID working. The AT commands are present, but the modem never returns a name or number.
