Welcome to Modem-Help
This is the Home page of a site dedicated to providing assistance to modem users. “MODEM” is used in the generic sense - info & links are provided for Broadband (DSL & ADSL), Cable & ISDN digital-modems as well as V.92, V.90, V.34 & slower analog-modems. The site’s genius is in allowing identification of a modem, sufficient at least to find compatible drivers & information, by the same methods that computers use. The site is modem-, protocol- & OS-agnostic, and tries to be as comprehensive as possible.
As much of the site as possible is kept free-to-view, though you are encouraged to use the low-cost registration (top right on every page). As well as paying the site bills (!) this gives access to private forums, site downloads & assistance, plus pages can be advert-free.
This page is intended to help you get to what you want as quickly as possible or--if you just want to browse around--to give guidelines as to how everything is laid out as to get the best out of the vast amount of information available.
Remember, all drivers, downloads & info on this site are found via the modem.
Each Modem Manufacturers’ page also has external web-links, where available.
Your goal, then, is to find your modem’s page. This is often the first stumbling block! but fear not. A multitude of ways are provided to get either to the precise modem, or at least a compatible one. Where possible, each modem is identified by:
- Hardware IDs - including BABT, FCC, Manufacturer specials, Model names & EEPROMs
- Buses, Features, OSs, Protocols & Telecom Countries
Cross-links are provided on the modem page for most of these, which gives an easy way of finding compatible drivers & info if your precise modem does not have any, or you want better. This site also maintains a massive stockpile of both (requires registration, top right).
