Installing New Modem

  Henmin 18:37 16 Feb 2005

Hi There,

I'm not sure how to go about uninstalling the old Modem and Installing the New Modem.

Do I have to Uninstall the Old Modem first then take it out of the case? And then put the New Modem into the PCI Slot and them install the New Modem and its Drivers?

That is the way i would do it. Make sure you have a CD with the new modem drivers or else connect to the internet on your old modem before you uninstall it an download drivers for your new modem from the manufacturers website and store on your hard disc.

Sounds good. Check the new modem's instructions. Sometimes you have to install the drivers first, then the hardware. Sometimes you have to cancel out of the Found New Hardware wizard and then install the modem software afterwards.

Hi Maccyroo & FelixTCat,


I've done it, I've done it, I've done it!

However, the new Modem is very much noisier.

You're welcome. You're right about the modem - I can hear it from here.
