modem problems



I am pretty sure this is driver related.

I purchased a new system and tried to save a few bucks by purchasing one that did not come with an OS.

I have installed Win 98 Second Edition. Everything is up and running except the modem.

Under device manager it is listed and says working properly, however, my ISP software cant set it up and...
when i use diagnostics it says communicating with modem then says could not open port.

The CD that came with the system that contains the drivers, autoruns on Windows XP. I know that i have to manually find the drivers on the cd that are related to Win 98. I thought I had found them but now I am not so sure...
please help!!

What is your modem make and model? Is it internal or external?

This error is usually related to address conflicts especially with K56 Flex modems.

More info please.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
