My folks recently acquired a Mac 7300/200 and want to put a modem in it (or attach one to it).

Suggestions/recommendations?

Grab a regular old USRobotics 56k v.90 modem..Serial connection...thats all there is to say. Should run you about $80 bucks.

The older models don't have internal modems, you need to purchase an external modem. Good brands are USRobotics and Power User.

The speed can be up to 56K, but make sure you purchase the serial port version (round connector) not a USB version, unless you want to go through the trouble of installing a USB card in the mac.

pvaneykelen,

Welcome (back) to Expert's Exchange. I'm rejecting your answer for two reasons, but with a comment I hope you'll understand.

First, weed got here first; in fact, I was responding to his post as you were posting yours. Second, your "answer" doesn't fit EE's criteria for being an "answer" (that is, you'd better be triple-super-duper-fantastic-certain that what you suggest is the one-and-only-dyed-in-the-wool-true-blue possible solution).

My comment to you is that EE is a site built on collaboration. I'm sure if you go through some old graphics and/or fonts questions, you'll find a couple where weed and I have agreed and disagreed and had different suggestions for solving the same issue. The point is that we both try to help, and we do so by leaving Comments, so that the questioner can evalutate the responses, picking the one which best suits his/her situation. Frequently this leads to the splitting of points by the questioner, because more than one response is used.

When you "Answer" a question, it gets moved to the Locked Questions, which inhibits further responses from others, and makes it more difficult for questioners to get answers; I've seen it on more than one occasion that questioners have been given misinformation because a question got locked.

So don't take it personally, okay? This happens all the time...

weed,

I've probably got an old one sitting around the office somewhere... *grin*... might not even cost me 80 cents...

Regards,
