Just bought a new PC with the above modem, have followed the installation guide for the drivers, but it will not work. It looks like it is not dialling out as the irritating noises that modems make when they start are not being emitted. I know the line and connection is ok because I have tested them with another PC. Does anyone have any advice or can point me to a good website. Thanks
I seem to recall the actual modem is a Zoom. go tho there site and get the driver. If I remember you have to install the driver before installing the modem, so I guess you'll have to take your modem out of the case!
Just looking at things from a broad perspective, with my suggestion of the muted sound, as Feck did say "It looks like it is not dialling out as the irritating noises that modems make when they start are not being emitted." A potential problem that might rear its head later.
I have used the same modem on my pc -----mine did not make the same racket that the modem i use now does!
However just because it was silent didnt stop it from connecting-------unlike a thunderstorm which stopped it for good!
You do need to install the drivers first with this modem. Try uninstalling the drivers and then physically removing the modem--Then reinstal the drivers and refit the modem,reboot and it should work-----------probably silently.
