I built a computer for a friend who lives in a rual location with only dial-up access. Since my friend wanted a fast computer, I suggested installing Linux and got the go ahead. After installing Ubuntu Linux, I found the US Robotics USB5637 modem is supported by Linux so I purchased it from Buy.com. Couple of days later I had it in hand and installed it. During installation, if your Linux system doesn't autodetect this USB modem when you click the autodetect box, type in /dev/ttyACM0 as it worked for me. I dial-up the ISP and found I had a good solid connection and started surfing the web with no problems. If you need an external modem for Linux, the US Robotics USB5637 is the modem for you.

USR - Consistently Good

by Phil on 1/8/2009

OK, let's face it... modems are obsolete for most of us. I bought this one for one of my customers who uses his laptop modem to communicate with store's refrigeration units he services. His built-in laptop modem had trouble communicating with some of the stores (older modems). I immediately suggested USR as "the best". Sure enough, it installed easily and connected perfectly to ALL stores. It's a bit expensive, but clearly worth it. A very good product.

A great modem if you must have one!

by Phil Samuels on 2/16/2009

This USR USB fax modem is excellent in every respect. The setup is easy and the quality is outstanding. Modems are becoming more and more ancient, but, if you have to have one for your applications, this one is terrific. Because you will probably be talking to other older modems, it's great to have one that really works with all of the protocols. I used this one for a customer who just got a new laptop with a built-in modem. But, that modem wouldn't communicate properly with all of his customers' modems. Once we installed this USR modem, communication was perfect.
