56K USB Dial-UP Fax Modem for GNU / Linux (TPE-56KMODEM)

56K USB Dial-UP Fax Modem for GNU / Linux (TPE-56KMODEM)
If you are looking for convenience, ease of installation, and high performance, we have the modem for you. Our 56K USB 2.0 modem has GPL drivers and support for all recent distributions of GNU / Linux.

  • Extensive Documentation & Easy Installation Instructions for most popular and libre (free) distributions

  • Works world wide; see the country compatibility list

  • Support for 32 & 64 BIT systems

  • On-board controller and digital signal processor (DSP) for maximum OS support

  • Not dependent on OS-loaded binary blobs, or proprietary drivers-firmware

  • Support for sending & receiving of faxes (protocol V.17, V.29, Group 3, Class 1, check out our support pages for documentation)

Note: While our modem is supported natively across distributions and releases there may be no dialer software included in the default installation of your favorite distribution. Many distributions have stopped including a dialer program and thus dial-up users are forced to download and install a dialer program separately.

Effectively this means that if you are unable to connect to the internet at least temporarily via another means you won't be able to utilize this dialup modem "out of the box". Fortunately this problem is easy to solve. Just let us know what distribution and version you are using in the comments section at checkout. We will then be able to include the appropriate dialer software on CD or flash drive as well as relevant directions on installing the software.

Fast shipping:

Most customers will receive this item within 1-5 business days when selecting our "Standard Shipping" option or our USPS shipping option if within the US. Most others in populated regions will generally get it within 6-10 business days.
