Apple Modem Updater 2.0
The Apple Modem Updater will update modems in the PowerBook G3 Series, iMac,Power Macintosh G3 (Blue and White), and Power Macintosh G4 (PCI and AGP)computers. The updater installs version 2.3 of the Conexant firmware whichcontains the latest versions of both the V.90 and the K56flex protocols. Themodems can use either the K56flex or V.90 protocols and will automaticallynegotiate with the service provider to use the appropriate one.
After you have updated the modem you may notice that the connection speed thatis reported when you first establish a connection may be lower than it was priorto the upgrade, however the modem throughput will be at least as good and oftenbetter than before the upgrade. Throughput is the measure of how quickly acertain amount of data is transferred from one modem to another. It is importantto remember that the connection speed that is reported is only the initialconnection speed. The modems will adjust their communications speed as lineconditions require. A faster connection speed does not necessarily indicate ahigher throughput, factors like resending data due to noise on the phone lineswill lower overall throughput.

Before you begin, make sure your PC or Mac meets the system requirements.

If you are reinstalling Office, you have already redeemed a product key, or you are installing Office at work or school and know you have a license, then go to the section sign in to download and install Office.

However, if this is the first time you're installing Office, you may have some pre-installation steps to do first. Expand the Learn more section below for more info.

If this is the first time you're installing Office, you may have to complete a set of pre-installation steps first or you may need to follow different steps than what's contained below. What you do depends if your copy of Office is an Office for home or an Office for business product and whether or not you have a product key you have to redeem, an existing account associated with Office, or a pre-assigned license.

Office for home

If you have an Office for home product and it came with a product key*, before installing for the first time (or sharing it if you have Microsoft 365 Family), you need to redeem your product key first.

Go to office.com/setup and sign in with an existing or new Microsoft account* and then enter your product key to redeem it. Redeeming your key is what adds your Microsoft account to Office and you only have to do this once. If you're renewing a Microsoft 365 subscription with a new product key, use the same Microsoft account you previously associated with your expired version subscription.

Tip: Once this is done, anytime you need to install or reinstall Office you can go straight to the next section, Sign in to download Office and select the tab for help to install on a PC or Mac. Be sure to sign in with the same Microsoft account you used to redeem your product key at office.com/setup.

Office​​​​ for business

If your Office for business subscription plan includes the desktop version of the Office apps you won't see an option to install it unless someone in your organization assigned a license to you.

Learn how to check this in What Microsoft 365 business product or license do I have? or if you're a Microsoft 365 admin responsible for assigning licenses to people in your organization, see Assign licenses to users.

Once you verify you have a license, anytime you need to install or reinstall Office you can go straight to the section below, Sign in to download Office and select the tab for steps to install on a PC or Mac. You'll sign in with your work or school account for these versions of Office.

*If you don't have a product key or an account

Some versions of Office such as Office Professional Plus 2021, Office Standard 2021, or a stand-alone app such as Word 2021 or Project 2021 don't have an associated Microsoft account, or work or school account.

The steps to install these versions can be different depending if you got Office through one of the following ways:

Microsoft HUP:
You bought Office for personal use through your company benefit program and have a product key, see Install Office through HUP.

Volume license versions:
IT departments might use a different method when installing Office for people in their organization. Talk to your IT department for install help.

Third-party seller:
You bought Office from a third-party and you're having problems with the product key.

Sign in or installation FAQ

The following are a few of the more common questions or issues when trying to install Office.

Tip: Don't see your issue listed? Try Troubleshoot installing Office for additional issues and their possible solutions.

Account questions:

Before you can install Microsoft 365 or Office 2021 you need to associate it with a Microsoft account, or work or school account.

If you have an Office for home product and bought Office at a retail store or online store, but don't have a Microsoft account, it's possible you haven't redeemed your product key yet (if you got one), or you missed the step for linking your recent purchase with an account. Do the following to link an account with Office.

For an Office for home product, go to office.com/setup and create a new Microsoft account or sign in with an existing one, then follow the remaining steps on that page such as entering your product key (if you have one). Your account is successfully associated with Office when you see the page, My Office Account followed by your Microsoft account email address, and a button to install Office. Select the PC or Mac tabs above to help you with the rest of the install process.

If the Microsoft account or work or school account isn't working, see I forgot the username or password for the account I use with Office.

After signing in with your work or school account you don't see an option to install the desktop applications on the Microsoft 365 home page, go directly to the Microsoft 365 Software page instead. Select the language and bit-version you want (PC users can choose between 32-bit and 64-bit), and then click Install. See Step 2 and 3 on the PC or Mac tabs above to help you with the rest of the install process.

Notes:

  • If your organization uses Microsoft 365 operated by 21Vianet in China, sign in to the Microsoft 365 Software page at https://portal.partner.microsoftonline.cn/OLS/MySoftware.aspx.

  • If your organization uses Microsoft 365 Germany, sign in to the Microsoft 365 Software page at https://portal.office.de/OLS/MySoftware.aspx.

If you still don't see an option to install Office on the Microsoft 365 Software page, it's possible your admin hasn't assigned a license to you. Find out if you have a license to install Office.

If you're a student or teacher and your institution didn't give you a license, find out if you're eligible to Get Microsoft 365 for free.

If you're trying to sign in with your work or school account to www.office.com and your sign in is blocked, it likely means your Microsoft 365 administrator set up a security policy that's preventing you from signing in to that location.

To install Office, try signing in directly to the Microsoft 365 Software page instead. Select the language and bit-version you want (PC users can choose between 32-bit and 64-bit), and then click Install. See Steps 2 and 3 on the PC or Mac tabs above to help you with the rest of the install process.

Notes:

  • If your organization uses Microsoft 365 operated by 21Vianet in China, sign in to the Microsoft 365 Software page at https://portal.partner.microsoftonline.cn/OLS/MySoftware.aspx.

  • If your organization uses Microsoft 365 Germany, sign in to the Microsoft 365 Software page at https://portal.office.de/OLS/MySoftware.aspx.

If you're still not able to sign in, contact your administrator.

Product key, purchase, and installing older versions of Office:

Not all versions of Office include a key, but if yours did, you need to redeem it before you can install Office. Go to office.com/setup and sign in with an existing Microsoft account or create a new one, then enter your product key. Follow the remaining prompts to finish linking your Microsoft account with this version of Office.

No product key or not sure if you need one? See Using product keys with Office.

Installation help for older versions of Office:

Install questions or errors during install

For Microsoft 365 subscriptions only: You can install Office on all your devices and be signed in to five at the same time. To learn more, see How sign in works in Microsoft 365.

If you have Microsoft 365 Family, you can also share your Microsoft 365 Family subscription with up to five family members or other people. Each person can install Office on all their devices and be signed in to five at the same time.

For a one-time purchase of Office such as Office Home & Student, Office Home & Business, or Office Professional: You can install these non-subscription versions of Office on only one computer. However, you may transfer Office to another computer that belongs to you if you experience a hardware failure or you buy a new computer. For more information, see the Microsoft License Terms for your product, or see this blog post, Office now transferable.

When installing Office on a PC, you must be an administrator on the PC computer where you want to install Office. If you're not sure, see Check if you have local admin rights to install Office.

If you bought a stand-alone version of an Office app, for example Visio or Word, in most cases you install this app in the same way you install the Office suite, by signing in to www.office.com with your Microsoft account, or work or school account and selecting Install for your stand-alone product.

If you have a subscription to Project Online Professional, Project Online Premium, or Visio Pro for Microsoft 365, see Install Project, or Install Visio for the steps to install the apps that are part of those subscriptions.

The Office apps are available to install on your iPhone and iPad, Android device, or Windows phone and tablet. See Set up Office apps and email on a mobile device.

If Office seems to be taking a very long time to install, this may be caused by problems with your internet connection, firewall, or anti-virus software. For possible solutions, see Office is taking long to install.

Office can also take long to install because of a slow internet connection (such as a dial-up connection). If you don't have a good connection, install Office using the Use the Office offline installer.

Office won't install: Your computer must be running a supported operating system to install Office. You can find a list of which systems are supported on the system requirements page. For example, your install won't be successful if you're trying to install Office on a computer running Windows Vista or Windows XP operating system. If your computer can't install the full desktop version of Office, try the free Office Online apps using your desktop browser.

I received an error message: If you got an error message while trying to install Office and it has a Learn More link, select it to get information for how to troubleshoot that particular error. If there wasn't a link, see Troubleshoot installing Office.

I received an unsupported operating system message: If you got an unsupported operating system error message you may be trying to install Office on an unsupported device such as installing the Mac version of Office on a PC or vice versa, or trying to install Office on a Chromebook or other mobile device. See Unsupported operating system error when installing Office or Set up Office apps and email on a mobile device.
