I have a 3Com (now USR) 3CXM556 modem that I cannot get installed on Win XP The
USR site has NT drivers which won't install, nothing for 2000 or XP for this
device. The modem shows up as a non functional PCMCIA Generic Device in Hardware
Manager, attempting to install it manually XP gives me no choices under Modem or
PCMCIA cards that are even close and I can't connect to the internet to search
for the "best driver" because my Network card uses both PCMCIA slots.

I just want to use this as a generic modem in the USA, don't care about the
card's cellular support. Anyone know or have any suggestions to get this working?

Thank you

Arn

PS: The machine is a dual boot XP-SP2 / Win 98, Dell 7000 PII 333, aging
gracefully!

Have you tried installing it with "Hayes Compatible" drivers.

No

When I attempted a manual install I received no choices under PCMCIA, but did
install a 56K modem, but it did not work.

Just discovered this.
Seems the upper PCMCIA slot is bad. It works fine in the lower slot.
