My Zoom ADSL modem, model 5510B works perfectly with Vista.
I can't find a definitive reply as to whether it will work with Windows 7 that I am considering upgrading to.
Does anyone know if it is compatible?
Thanks.

Thanks for your prompt replies guys.
I checked both your "clicks" but have still not been able to determine its compatibility with Windows 7.

I presume that windows 7 will have a
compatibility feature that will enable it to function( in say XP mode for example)?

It might work in compatibility mode, but you'll not know until you try it. Modems aren't that expensive anyway, so how keen are you to upgrade to Win 7?

Hmmmm.....Windows7 - new modem, new modem-Windows7.

I'll have to think about this.

Thanks for your help Maj.
