I got this 3com modem on the cheap and need to know if it is hardware and 56K. I was told it was but there seem to no documentation on the 3com site about this other than its OEM(based on the driver site). It is a Sportster model 460.
Any ideas. Let me know if you need more info.

3com doesn't have such model no., their model numbers look usually like 568703. You should dowload th 3Com internet update wizard, the wizard will give you the modem identification number. Where did you find that the model was 460.

The wizard won't help on OEM modems, thus the weird model #'s.

In parameters, configuration panel, modem, diagnostics,you should see at "ATI7" the "Product Id" of the modem. Or go in Hyperterminal with "ATI7".

A software modem requires drivers in your windows/system directory that include .vxd and/or .dll files supplied with the modem with which it will not operate.
A Hardware modem requires no such drivers & will operate without them.
