Jack how have you tried loading the Modem? is it USB or Lan? Did you try through Add New Hardware in Control Panel?

Its PCI dial up
Windoze finds new hardware OK and runs the routine
Finds the CD and driver etc all goes in seemingly
But it is this constandt do it -dont want to do it thats the puzzle.
