New HP Laptop, Windows 10, i7 processor, 8 GB RAM, 1 TB hard drive, a dial up modem and a little old lady on a fixed budget...
Build 10.0.16299 - fully updated with windows update (through my broadband).
I agreed to help a little old lady with a new computer, but she uses AOL dialup for her internet. Fixed budget and they are 1/4 the price of cable or AT&T and she checks emails and does a little facebook - speed is not an issue.
However, I have tried three different USB external modems and can not get any of them to work with window 10. I got one to dial, negotiate, but never connect. I have downloaded windows 10 drivers from vendor site, installed them as an admin and run in compatibility mode. I don't know what else to try.
Has anyone had any luck with a dial up modem on windows 10 and if so, what modem did you find that worked consistently?
