cant get modem connected

  kaza1 11:24 24 May 2007

Hi, can someone please offer me some advice.

I have just bought a toshiba l30 laptop, my isp is tiscalli, when i try to install the speedtouch modem it just jams up when the installation d tells you to connect modem to pc and the light on the modem stays red.

Am i doing something wrong?

Whats your operating system?

If it's Vista you may need to check it's compatable with your ISP.

Hi yes it is vista, but tiscali say that it is compatible?

Thanks, Graham, the only thing is I cant connect to the net to download it to the laptop, I will order a new cd to see if that helps.

Download it on another PC (Save, not Run), save to CD, open and Run on the laptop.

i have recieved a speedtouch installation cd and have 2 lights on the modem but it still wont connect to tiscali . i have entered username and password, however i am not sure if this is where i am going wrong, when it asks for the phone no to connect to on my current pc it says 0 so i have tried that and also 0,38 but neither work. I have emailed tiscali but not had a reply.

Would be grateful if anyone knows.

I have spoke to tiscali and you do dial 0,38 at the bottom of the scree n is says modem is not connected even though i have 2 green lights?
