Will a Modem of one ISP work on an another ISP, my son has a Sagem from Tiscali and he would like to use it to connect up to Wanadoo but not sure if the drivers are compatible

He is using Windows XP

The modem should work fine. You just need to change the username and password to that of the new ISP.

The drivers only relate to the operating system.

Yes as long as you load the drivers. You should be able to use any modem other than a Cable modem. These are only for Cable
