    How to connect a fax/dail-up modem to my Mac
    Hi,
    *
    I'm new to this forum, so any help would be appreciated.
    *
    My problem is that I bought a dail-up/fax modem from dinodirect.com as shown here: Anpou V9.2 56Kbps External USB 2.0 Fax Modem - DinoDirect.com
    It has on the box a Mac logo so I assumed it would be Mac compatiable, however the software cd that came with it had no Mac drivers only Windows and Linux, so I figured it didn't need a driver. However when I plug it into my Mac and go to network it doesn't show up, and when I go to create a new network the dail-up area is shaded out. The chip set in it is a Conexant, but I can't find any drivers of it for Mac either. I'm running out of ideas, what can I do to get it to work?

    Thanks

    Btw I'm running Snow Leopard 10.6.8 on a White Macbook

    That Mac sticker next to the Windows one looks very old like it's for older Mac OS's. Also in the specs everything says Windows. I will search around and see if I can find anything more.

    G'day and welcome to the forums.

    My last two broadband ISPs do not provide a dialup service anymore, so I wonder how you will get on if you are in the same boat?
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Well if you find anything it would be appreciated, I haven't upgraded to lion yet so ppc drivers should work, unless it's a classic os driver.

    Luckily (well maybe not so) we still have a provider out in the country that does. Niagara DSL High Speed Internet Access, Residential and Business, Dialup, Web Hosting, Web Design, Computer Sales and Service, for St. Catharines, Niagara Falls, Niagara Region, Ontario, Canada

    That is great. Down Under we are experiencing the roll out of the National Broadband Network, an ultra high speed cable connection. One of the disadvantages seems to be the end of dialup.
