      My parents live in a very rural area and decided that they wanted to finally enjoy the internet although they could only get dial-up. They bought a brand new computer which, as can be expected, did not have a jack for a telephone line. as a loyal customer to B&H I looked here first and found the Trendnet 56k modem that would allow them to get on the internet via dial-up It has worked great for them thus far and I am very pleased yet again with my service at B&H!

      Three potential functions for the modem:
      1. Dial phone from a list on the computer.
      2. Send and receive a fax from the computer.
      3. Internet browsing.
      My prime interest was only the first item.

      Physical installation was easy but identifying, loading and using the appropriate software took at least a week, during which I tinkered while awaiting a response from the web-based help line.
      I'm still waiting.
      I've just sucessfully placed a call but doubt that I'll ever learn how to use any of the other advertised capabilities.
      Although the price is reasonable, expect to pay for expert help before successfully using it.

            Comments about Trendnet 56 K USB Phone/Internet/Fax Modem:

            I give it ten stars but your rating scale does not go that high! It eliminates the old idea of a PCI 56K Fax Modem PCI Card as the same PCI slot can give me 4 + 1 more USB ports in the older PCs, and it can attach to any PC with a free USB Port. It also allows you to skip in buying a Fax machine itself and learning as to what it does! I also have a Trendnet USB to RJ45 adapter and that allows me to connect my Gateway Solo Laptop directly wired into my router and go onto the Internet and skip the slow Wireless express card it has.

              Comments about Trendnet 56 K USB Phone/Internet/Fax Modem:

              I really wanted the US Robotics but they didn't carry it. I got this because it was the cheapest. It's nice that it's very small and light, but you don't get great speeds on it. Not as high speeds or consistent speeds as I got with the U.S. Robotics one that finally just gave out because of extensive use over time. You basically get what you pay for most of the time. Not a deal. BUT--in B&H's defense I called all the stores in NYC I could think of and no one kept this in stock and I didn't want to pay ridiculous shipping and wait. So, hats off to B&H for carrying everything you need.

              And, now when my wireless connection works I can't send out my email thru the wireless connection so, there are now configuration issues yet to be resolved.

                Comments about Trendnet 56 K USB Phone/Internet/Fax Modem:

                I bought this for one purpose. Wanted to blacklist calls using Linux Ubuntu 12.10 and ncid. At first it did not work however, all it took was running the command `sudo wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf` which found the modem and loaded the appropriate drivers. After that, ncid (network caller id) was able to use the modem after some minor configuration and was able to blacklist unwanted telephone calls. Now I don't have to worry about filling my 30 blacklist slots on my Panasonic phone (which filled up well over a year ago). I now have an unlimited number of blacklist slots as long as my computer is running. Very happy with this! Just received a call from `Private Caller` which was rejected since I put `Private Caller` in my `ncidd.blacklist` file.

                  Both my new desktop and laptop arrived with no phone connection, limiting FAX communications. The Trendnet modem restored this ability and could be attached on a 'as needed' basis.Documents with 'private data' is more secure via FAX than as an email attachment.Attached software is useful but not necessary since most PS's retain the ability to compose and receive FAX documents.

                    I am an electronics tech/consultant. We've entered the age of broadband phone use, so many computers come sans a modem port. Many of the devices we have installed for clients over the years are still programmable only via a dial-up modem, requiring a link to an analog phone line. This inexpensive USB Phone/Internet/Fax Modem from Trident fills the bill as an attachment to my on-the-job netbook computer. It's simple to set up and use, and very small, easily fitting into my 10.2-inch netbook carrying case. I have no negatives. It works and costs little.

                            I did some research on this type of product and this one in got the best reviews, which led me to purchase one. My application was a bit different from the directions, as I have a Brother 3 in 1 fax machine with a phone jack and a newer Dell Inspirion zino HD (which is the size of a mouse pad) that had no phone line jack on it. I solved the problem by using a 2 plug outlet phone line accessory on each end of the Trendnet. One at the actual phone jack on the wall and the other on the fax machine. This worked out well. I can send and receive faxes now. It wouldn't work following the directions, as I have DSL and it interrupted the service without the 2 plug outlet phone accessory. I am actually ordering another one for my business associate. Thanks!

                                  Three potential functions for the modem:
                                  1. Dial phone from a list on the computer.
                                  2. Send and receive a fax from the computer.
                                  3. Internet browsing.
                                  My prime interest was only the first item.

                                  Physical installation was easy but identifying, loading and using the appropriate software took at least a week, during which I tinkered while awaiting a response from the web-based help line.
                                  I'm still waiting.
                                  I've just sucessfully placed a call but doubt that I'll ever learn how to use any of the other advertised capabilities.
                                  Although the price is reasonable, expect to pay for expert help before successfully using it.

                                            While similar and cheaper products exist, chose this unit because of Mfg's 3-Yr warranty vs. 1-Yr by others. Easy install with no hassles and no drivers required in a MS Windows 7 operating environment. Delighted with its immediate use.

                                            Shipment - Tracked product arrived one day sooner than originally expected.

                                            Vendor experience: no complaints whatsoever.

                                              My parents live in a very rural area and decided that they wanted to finally enjoy the internet although they could only get dial-up. They bought a brand new computer which, as can be expected, did not have a jack for a telephone line. as a loyal customer to B&H I looked here first and found the Trendnet 56k modem that would allow them to get on the internet via dial-up It has worked great for them thus far and I am very pleased yet again with my service at B&H!
