Want to use Apple USB Modem

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


I’m trying to connect my new Apple USB External modem to my Mac which is running Lion. I received the error that I cannot use the Apple modem on this.

I browsed the net and I’m worried to find the modem does not work with Lion. Is that so? Can you please confirm and suggest me an alternate?

Error:“Unsupported You cannot use an Apple USB Modem with this computer.”

The Apple USB Modem is a small add on available for all Apple macs that do not include a built in dial up modem as standard. These include several versions of the iMac G5, the Intel based iMac, the Intel based Mac Mini and the MacBook Pro.

It is also possible this could be used as a replacement for a faulty or older built in modem on earlier models.

To use the Apple USB modem, your Mac computer must meet one of these requirements:

  • Have an Intel processor running Mac OS X v10.4.3 or later in 32 bit mode.
  • Have a PowerPC processor with Mac OS X v10.4.2 or later.

Also note that when using the Apple USB Modem, you must select the Apple External 56k modem script in your Network preferences.

NO I am really sorry to say that the apple USB modem is unsupported by Mac lion but others well.

In a article tech site of Mac, Cult of Mac has said that apple appears to no longer supporting USB modem or other communication bla ,bla, bla it was big article. May be it eager to phase out more modems in favor of modem option but the thing is that support is been not completely removed from that system.

For farther more detail’s you can browse via Google for your self but you can visit this site also.
