Re: Dark ages
- You mentioned Vista and that the modem stopped working. Is it perhaps
that Vista has no drivers for the modem? Was it an internal modem that
came with the PC? That is most probable reason for its quitting, IMO.
Dell's support site for your model might offer a driver compatible
I suppose you could try the rear USB port and find out for yourself
but it shouldn't make any difference.
Since it is a new modem, have you tried accessing the manufacturer for
tech support and FAQs?
As to Real Arcade and Vista, I found this which might help you shed
some light but I'm not familiar with Real Arcade nor with the nuances
of Vista. If you describe the exact problem or error you're
encountering I'm sure I could find additional info in Google that
might be useful to you:
