    I bought a Zoom 56k usb modem to hook up to my toshiba lap top (no disk came with it) to get a dial up connection.(my only option). The comp. wont let me down load the modem. The wizzard said to contac Zoom web site but they dont have a search menu to post my problem. I have a set up disk to install msm but it wont down load till i can the modem in. The comp. came with out a modem. Any input will be welcomed. Thank You

    You need to install drivers for the modem. Go to Zoom's website to download them.

    You're on the Internet right now, so that statement can't be true. ;)

    Use something like a USB flash disk and copy them to the ailing computer.

    If you told us what problems you're having trying to install the drivers, perhaps we could help.
