When I bought this computer (used) in 2005, it came with some bargain-priced generic modem that I didn't quite trust. I was going to be online a lot so I thought I'd invest in something better that I wouldn't have to worry about.
The USR got reasonably fast connections, typically 50666 bps (it helps that I live close to the phone company). It didn't seem to drop calls in the usual way but something kept going wrong. I'd be in the middle of a session, click a link, and either the other site would stop answering or my browser would tell me it was "unable to locate" the host. Windows System Monitor would show normal numbers for Bytes Transmitted per second but Bytes Received would go to zero and stay there.

After excellent, albeit not spectacular, connections with an old ZOOM external serial port V.90 modem, I thought it time to not only upgrade to the V.92 communication protocol but also get rid of the cables and power brick that are part of any external modem, as well as the outdated standard serial port. Note that the old ZOOM modem (with a new XP driver) worked flawlessly on a new DELL 2.6 GHz Pentium with 512 MB of RAM, running Win-XP Pro. I picked the USR 5610 for two reasons: a) it's the one sold in the DELL store for the GX270 model, and b) it is one of the very few PCI modems with an onboard flash-upgradable EPROM (as well as a DSP digital signal processor) -- of course you pay for those extras, as compared with a commodity "Win Modem" that uses the computer's processor. Physical installation was easy enough, as was the software driver (dated 8/01) installation from the enclosed CD. OK, ready to test [after verifying proper hardware installation with XP Device Manager's 'Modem...
WE HAD TWO OF THESE UNITS WHICH PERFORMED VERY WELL UNTIL A LINE SERGE BLEW OT BOTH OF THEM.WITH NO INTERNET ACCESS AND THE POPULARITY DROPPING IN FAVOR OF THE WIRELESS NETWORK MODEM,WE WERE IN A "CATCH 22",NO MODEM TO ACCESS THE INTERNET TO GET MORE.WE THOUGHT THESE MODEMS WERE LONG DISCONTINUED.US ROBOTICS,NOW AN INDEPENT PRIVATE COMPANY WAS VERY HEPLFUL. THE STRANGE PART IS THESE MODEMS HAVE NEVER BEEN DISCONTINUED,BUT,THEY PRODUCED A THIRD EDITION.THEY PROVIDED THE PHONE NUMBER TO ONE OF THEIR DISTRIBUTORS AND SAVED THE DAY.THANKS TO AMAZON'S RESELLERS WE FOUND A GOOD VALUE FOR A "BACK UP UNIT" SO WE WON'T GET "STUCK" AGAIN.NICE SAVE.
