MY new modem

If the above does not help, details of the exact model are needed so we can look around. Also what connection type does it use USB or lan (ethernet) to your PC. And what does it claim to be/do - A link to a product page on 3coms site would help?

The windows 2000 driver should work wiht XP, and if not, you could go down the Lan route, which should be universal, unless it uses propriety connection software on a PC.

OK, having looked around, I can't find much on it.

I did find that you can turn it into a router, which isn't documented (apparently).

However, i can't find the page on 3COM for it. Have you got a part number or link?

That seems to be a discontinued product intended for the US market.

However, according to the PDF factsheet (HERE) it does support PPPoA.

Can't remember if I said it in this thread, however, the Windows 2000 driver should function on XP, provided you acknowledge it isn't a signed and possibly unsafe driver. Though this is not always the case.

However, upon searching the 3COM knowledge base, I have found it can be used on XP, only when using thernet and it is setup in bridging mode.

Goto the 3COM knowledge base and enter "Solution ID"
