If any of you out there have the time to lend a hand- I’m having trouble getting my PC to recognize my modem.
I recently discontinued my cable modem service until I can afford to by a new computer. My current computer is getting too slow and outdated, and as such, it really isn’t worth the $40 p/month extra- so I figured I’d go back to dial-up for awhile.
Anyhoo, I’ve uninstalled my ethernet card and my modem. I then reinstalled my modem. Win 98 allows me to install it, but will not connect or communicate with it. My feeling is that it’s connecting to the wrong port. My board has two COM ports hardwired into it. The mouse is in COM2, and the install wizard only allows the modem to get hooked into COM1. However, COM1 is obviously wired to an, at present, unused input plug.
So, how do I make the computer communicate with my modem?
This is an entirely boring thread, I understand, so if there’s anyone out there that might feel like helping, I’d be happy to communicate via email.
Thanks in advance!
