The Apple "Express Modem" is not actually a modem, but software pretending to be a hardware modem, running under the Mac OS on the Power Mac. Express Modem software is used by the GeoPort Telecom Adapter, and also by various internal "modem" cards that Apple makes, included with some Performas, etc.

For this reason, the BeOS does not support the Express Modem. In order to use a modem on the BeOS, you must have a full and actual modem, not a half modem, or an adapter.

Note that it is not impossible for Apple's partial modems to be used with the BeOS, but Apple would need to write software to do so. Be would be delighted to work with Apple to assist them in this effort. Contact Apple to let them know that as a customer, support for the BeOS is important to you.
