    I received this Trendnet modem from Amazon with free shipping, it was very well packed, fast shipping, very good service from Amazon as I have always had with everything I have ordered from them.
    I plugged the modem into my Windows 7 laptop USB connection and it worked immediately connecting to my dial up internet service. I did not have to use the CD that came with it nor did I need to download anything , it was just plug and play, very easy to use.I was going to order a cheaper modem but I went with this instead and I am very glad I did. It seems sturdy and well made and comes with a 3 year warranty and hopefully will last a long time. I recommend this modem, it is a good deal for under $30 for anyone who needs a modem to use for dial up internet service on their computer.

    Good modem for my Windows XP Home SP3 and PuppyLinux 4.3.1 but YMMV, January 14, 2011

    This review is from: TRENDnet 56K USB 2.0 Phone, Internet, and Fax Modem TFM-561U (White) (Personal Computers)

    This is a review of the TrendNET TFM-561U external USB modem, updated to report the finally-discovered cause and fix for a slow connection speed on Puppy. This modem has not gone through Microsoft’s compatible-with-XP program; works fine for me but your mileage may vary.
    Have XP Home SP3, PuppyLinux 4.3.1 LiveCD, and Microsoft 1016 USB Mouse on a Toshiba laptop. This modem works as well as my current US Robotics 5637 external USB modem on Windows and Puppy.
    The Installaton Guide says not to use the Windows Hardware Installation Wizard but to use the autorun.exe installation program on the supplied CD instead and this is what I did. The Guide is excellent with pictures so you know exactly what to expect. One glitch: the USB mouse froze up immediately after installation was complete but began working normally again after unplugging and replugging the mouse in. Have had no interference between the modem and mouse since this one glitch.
    The modem works well with Windows. Puppy, however, has a problem – the modem connects to my ISP just fine but was really slow. PROBE returns a MAXSPEED setting of 460800 and this is the cause of my slow connection speed on Puppy. Manually entering a MAXSPEED of 115200 or 57600 cures it. Think problem is at my ISP’s end and not a modem problem.

    FYI, either init string works (replace each underscore character with a space) with MAXSPEED=115200 or 57600.

    ATQ0_V1_E1_S0=0_&C1_&D2_+FCLASS=0

    BTW, this modem makes dialing noises on my laptop on Windows and Puppy (the USR does not), occupies about 1/2 the volume as and runs a tad cooler than the USR. I intend to use the TrendNET as my primary modem and keep the USR as a spare. Having had hands-on experience with both, I’d buy this modem again (~$28) before I’d buy another USR5637 (~$45) given its speed, smaller size, it’s cooler, and it makes dialing noises! Since the original review was written, found out the modem stops making dialing noises on Windows after Windows Media Player is used but modem performance is unaffected and noises come back on reboot – just a glitch, not a show stopper, so will leave rating at 4 stars.

    This product is amazing. I just bought a new Dell xps and for some reason I didn’t have an option for a 56k modem but I bought it anyways. I live in a very rural area and satellite internet is all I can get besides dial up so it’s important for me to have it because satellite internet sucks. Now I have dial up again and am very happy. I didn’t even know this product existed until my brother told me about it and I am glad he did. I would recommend this product to anyone who needs dial up and doesn’t have a built in 56k modem.
