Hi
I have a best data modem figured i would update the drivers, so i went to their web site and downloaded the drivers for win XP for a 56HP92-PCT modem. My current version is 11.300.14.0 and downloaded version 12.0300.0018, when i tried to apply it it erased the modem from my CPU. Had to use system restore to get it back to normal. What did i do wrong? What is the best way to apply the drivers?

Regards :thumbsup:

I can only offer a common sense reply. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. A modem is a modem. Unless the new drivers offer some new functionality you need, leave it be. New drivers won't magically increase your download speeds or latency.
