I’m having problems in configuring a dial-up modem with XP. The modem makes all the necessary dialling noises and I’m told the device is working satisfactory, but it won’t connect to the internet When I go into Network Connections and right click the connection, “Status” is greyed out. Any ideas anyone.
Go to Make New Connection. Use the number 08451121212. Use anything you like for the ID and anything you like for the password. If you get a connection then the modem is working so you must have a wrong setting for your ISP.
(lower case). Just tried it again, and all working OK.
You could also double check the modem is installed and working OK:- Open control panel, phone & modem options, select modems, click on the modem, select properties, select diagnostics, click on query modem, you should get a display of responses.
I would suggest you remove the ISP connection in Control Panel\Networks and then make sure you modem is installed correctly by double click modem in control panel\Modem tab\Properties\ Diagnostics\Query Modem to see what response you get
