And which of the drivers do you suggest on that page Peedee? Don't think any there will help seeing as how there is no mention in the question that he has a BTC modem.
Russ if the proposed answer does not answer the question you need to reject it so that the question can be put back on the board and others with input may be able to offer a solution to your question.

Can you find an FCC ID# on the modem? if so post it. Also follow these steps and we can try to discover the real manufacturer of the modem. Do this and post the results
1)Disconnect from the Internet.
2)Go to Control Panel
3)Double click the Modems icon
4)Click the Diagnostics tab
5)Select the COM Port where your modem is located and click the More Info... button,
6)Look for the Response from Comm... ATI3
Again you need to either accept the proposed answer or reject it and unlock the question.

Russ,
The question is closed but here is the link to your driver. You have a FMHSP56P modem made by Zoltrix. I would advise you to get a "real" modem and get rid of that software "modem". It would be your best bet ...LOL... http://www.zoltrix.com/PUBLIC/MODEM/WIN95/PT764-9i.exe

Have you any recommendations as to what type of modem I should get? I borrowed a USR 56k voice faxmodem (external) and all has been running smoothly. I would prefer an internal if possible though.
Thanks for your help

Russs,
The one you borrowed would be my first recommendation...LOL...
But there is an internal version of it. The key words to avoid when getting one is any reference to Winmodem, HSP, HCF, PcTel.
 These all are software or controllerless modems and require the work to be done by the computer's processor and resourses.
The external ones have all the hardware in them and do the work themselves. Look on the box for flow control that is hardware instead of software. I like USR or 3COM myself, they use their own chips. I also like Viking, they use Rockwell/Conexant chips or a Lucent chip.

Thanks for your help. Is there any way I can pass you on some points?
Russ

MrbreezeCommented:
Not without posting another question and only accepting an answer from me...LOL... The points isn't the big deal Russ, it is helping with the problems that count. When someone posts as an answer solutions that do not rectify the problem it is usually the other way around, the points is their goal. Just be careful in the future to only accept answers that are indeed that, answers. HSP "modems" are something new and they are nothing but trouble. The best cure is as I stated, replace it with a "real" one...LOL
