There may be too many variables here but here goes - since a usb dongle was inserted into my home comp (Windows ME - yes, I know but I want to get this sorted before I migrate to XP!) device manager shows nothing but 3 bluetooth entries under modem and I can't connect to the Internet. System Restore still sees the bluetooth under Device Manager / Modems BEFORE it was loaded (?)Have tried removing all modems in Dev Manager hoping windows will pick up modem as new hardware but it doesn't. Has the dongle damaged the usb (which is a dodgy area in ME anyway in my experience see my earlier posting to this forum) - ie there is a patch for 98 on the Microsoft website but not for ME.... Anyone had similar probs? -or has a solution!! Thanks
Thanks for the help - the answer was to take all the TCp/Ip items out of teh Network and re-install as the dongle had corrupted them. Windows would not see teh modem-even when I changed from usb to ethernet until those drivers were re-installed Thanks again all
