My motherboards BIOS has 'AC97 support for Modem'. Does this mean that the board has a built-in Modem that just needs to be connected? It also has 'AC97 support for audio' which gives me sound. Can anyone shed any light on this?

but at least this will bump your thread to the top again.

The AC97 support for modem, methinks, refers to a modem inserted into the AMR slot (have forgotten the correct name, but sometimes made by the motherboard manufacturers). The second reference is for your on-board sound.

If I'm wrong, someone will no doubt correct me.

If I recall is not an AMR an Audio Modem Riser and basically give the connection for the telephone line to the PC, the "Real" modem being a software modem running from Windows?

If you motherboard has a small (perhaps 3cm) brown slot just above or below the graphics then this is the AMR. Buy a AMR card and you should find it has a software program that acts as the modem.

Alternatively, V92 modems can be had from Dabs or Ebuyer for as little as £10.
