I have passed on my older pc to a friend. The pc originally had win95 on and had a working internal modem. The PC has now got win98 on, but I never bothered getting the modem going as I did not need it. As we did not know the modem type I bought a new v92 internal one (mentor on the box?), supposedly intel(ambient) according to the shop. I've tried everything to install this new modem,even reformatted the HD and re-istalled win98. The modem s/w seems to install ok, always on com2 (no other option) but although win98 says its working, when I try to use it, the message "could not communicate with modem, check it's turned on and IRQs are set correctly". We have spent hours on this. Win98 does not dtect it using P&P, so we have to pick the s/w from a list. Nothing works, always the same. Am I missing something obvious, I know modems are usually a pain but this on is particularly bad.
