Not in this case, apparently.

Not a very definitive test, Todd.

Of course. That's your bias at work.

My modem doesn't require any additional drivers to be installed, Todd.
It uses the serial port drivers, which are part of the base operating

Still having reading comprehension problems, Todd? I said nothing
