I need a replacement modem for my older Pavilion 563W. I am running XP Pro, SP2.
At the HP website, I find reference to the modem (in the product specs for my computer model) as being a Cheetah 2 v.90. At the Parts Store, a Cheetah III is indicated as being the correct part.
Can someone tell me with certainty which is correct, please?
Also, where might one find one of these modems? I understand that it goes by several names (for its manufacturer, chipset maker, etc.) At one site, I saw one such modem referred to as an HP Lucent Cheetah Win Modem 56k Data/Fax PCI.
I thank anyone who can help!

Thank you, dmhoo29. I wasn't sure whether I needed to install the same modem. I pulled a 56K PCI modem from another Compaq desktop, and looking at the connections, I see what I think are called "keys" (spaces between the rows of copper connections), and immediately thought that it may not fit the Pavilion 563W computer...
Are you saying that modem connections on the motherboard are standardized, and that all 56k Data/Fax PCI cards are interchangeable?

Thank you for your suggestion, Royal.
I installed the modem from my other computer, and it work fine! Device Manager even automatically found an update for the driver!
