Suggestion worth a try! Do like I did and find a local computer shop that
rebuilds computers and sells used parts. Take all the goods you have with
your USR 33,600 to the shop and ask to trade for a modem with jumpers! Odds
are the shop builds most of their pc's with Microsoft so they'll be glad to
take your USR winmodem that configures easily with 95.
I traded my USR Winmodem 28.8K for a Digicom (subsidary of Creative
labs) 33.6K for only $10 out of pocket. The main thing is you want to find a
modem that has jumpers you can change to set your com port and irq. *If the
modem needs software to set port and irq, pass it by and keep looking!*
