Did you bother to run the compatibility tests before you
upgraded? Not all hardware will work with XP. Not all
software works with XP.
You can look for XP drivers for your modem and install those
if you find them. You can try uninstalling the modem using
device manager and rebooting. If you did an upgrade, it is
possible that your old drivers were not replaced.

In the worst case, your modem may be totally not compatible,
buy a new modem for just a few dollars and you'll be happy
with the V.92 standard.

Try replacing the modem witha different brand.

Seriously, give the man some help. What modem is it exactly? Post a
follow up to this with the brand name and model if you have it and I
will find the drivers for you ;)  Also, have you tried installing the
software that came with it or looked on the maker's website for new
drivers.

Here is my RANT: Most hardware is compatible with Windows XP. Why would
he buy a new modem if he already has one? That would be a waste of
money considering he may have the exact same problem with that one that
he is having with this one.

I think you missed my suggestions that were the same as
yours, except I didn't offer to do his research for him.

I am sorry, was actually giving the guy from first reply of get a
different brand a hard time :) . I honestly didn't mean to offend you.
Also, very few pieces of hardware don't work with Windows XP especially
since there is compatibility mode which we may have to resort to if XP
drivers don't exist ;)
