Being "designed for Windows" thus gives no clue as to whether or not it will work under Linux. You might check the Website of the manufacturer or inquire via email. Some manufacturers are specifically stating that certain models work under Linux. Sometimes they are linmodems that require you to obtain and install a certain linmodem driver.
Windows XP is generally very good at finding hardware. Visit the web site for the manufacturer of the modem and ensure you have the correct drivers for your modem. The drivers are the software which communicates between XP and the modem.
Linux may not support these features very well if at all. If this is a recent version of Modem-HOWTO, let me know of your experience with this. Unfortunately, some software modems will not work with Linux due to lack of Linux drivers. If you buy a new one that you’re not sure will work under Linux, try to get an agreement that you can return it for a refund if it doesn’t work out.
- Linux has better driver support out of the box.
- I have purchased both the winmodem and wireless drivers from Linuxant.

Is driver talent safe to download?
Driver Talent is a potentially unwanted program that should manage your drivers, but it starts to push other shady tools once it gets on the machine. This is not a harmful program or malware.
Besides the driver/software download page Vodacom has a general support page which definitely is worth a look. It has info on PC, mobile device, and software solutions and set-ups. If this screen is not displayed or the wizard goes straight to the “Other Device Types” screen, then check that the Windows drivers have been installed correctly , and that the device is connected. With later Windows versions you may see a notification from Windows that it is installing drivers from the device. Wait for this to complete before continuing – this may take several minutes.
What drivers are needed for Windows 10?
Important drivers include: Chipset, Video, Audio and Network (Ethernet/Wireless). For laptops, make sure you download the latest Touch Pad drivers. There are other drivers you will probably need, but you can often download these through Windows Update after have a working Internet connection setup.
Another reason is that many of the drivers were written years ago and will only work for older versions of the Linux kernels. The driver code is secret and the companies don’t want to update drivers for hardware they are no longer selling. At one time (2002 ?) all external modems would work under Linux. But then came the controllerless external modem which wouldn’t. If the box says it requires Windows with no mention of Linux it could mean just that.
