Compatible Modems recommended

Post by PizzaProgram » Fri Sep 16, 2016 12:15 am

Hi,

We have just started testing your cool component, and we need to decide witch modem should we choose / buy in bigger quantities later.

We have tried yet a very expensive PCI one (witch worked :) on Win7-64b )
and an old HP laptop (XP) with built-in Agere kind (witch did NOT!).
There are many cheap (4-5 EUR) kinds, from computer-part-shops, but PCs with PCI slots are getting rare since AHCI SATA motherboards appeared.


So the best way to go should be USB-Modems, but mostly they are very expensive (50-100Eur), and without buying and trying there is no way to know, if they work?
We need a lot, because probably many Pizzerias will buy, sometimes even 2-3, if they have more landlines.
That's why we need possible cheap ones, working with XP, Win7, Win8, Win10.

I've found 3 versions seem to be interesting:

50Eur version (Connexant):

(The 2 ports are sadly not 2 modems, but only 1 with an "Y" hub, and no Win10 support yet).

or a cheap one from Conrad: 25 Eur: (Agere)

(ONLY XP + Win7 driver :( )

or cheapest Chinese noname Connexant compatible: (15Eur)

Are these good, or any other recommendations ?
I would like to use them ONLY for CallerID while the phone is ringing. (Before picking up.)

Thank you for your answers :)

The more time I invest into this search the more clear it gets the fact:
- Most of the modems having problems under Windows 10 , and the manufacturer usually does not plan to write a proper driver for the newest OS.

But there are some exceptions:

Hello,
sorry, but we are not able to suggest a TAPI modem. There are too many devices on the market an we can't test them.
For telephony sulutions, we suggest the way2call products which provide a good TAPI support.

Best regards
Stefan

Thank you for the recommendation, although I've hoped you can suggest something in the 25Eur price range.
(Way2way cheapest 1-line model costs currently $300. That is too expensive for my customers. )
