I am trying to load AOL Software, but the system says it can't locate a modem. What does this mean? How do I locate the modem and how do I know what type of modem it is? Is it true that if I can connect my telephone line to the back of the computer that I have a modem? Please help. Tell me how to set it up or to get it functioning. Thank you.

Re: Can't locate a Modem connection
Ok, First off, Yes, if you have a plug in the back of your computer that allows a standard phone connection wire from computer to the wall, that usually means you have a modem. If you have the ability to get Broadband internet, my suggestion is to get that instead. Its more reliable and doesnt have an automatic disconnect feature that AOL has always had. Also, if you already have broadband, then you can connect with AOL directly through the broadband connection and skip the Modem use entirely. Best i can tell you, other than if your computer is not finding the modem, that means its been either disabled or is missing the drivers.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

first call aol technical support ask them to do a diagnostic on ur modem or you can do it manually by cliking on start control panel ,clik ,phone and modems,then clik on modems tab, there should be a modem listed in there if not u need a driver for ur modem if there is 1 double left clik it, then left clik the diagnostic tab,then clik the querry modem tab ,wait ,it will say communicating with modem and then ull see a whole bunch of letters come up if u see them, means modem is good . but sometimes even if it says its good it still could be bad so try a new modem.
Installation Disks hardly work for the installation... Try to contact the Tiscali Service Provider and get the uid and the password for the network access. Once you are done with this, you need to configure the modem st585 for the internet connectivity. Check the Proper VPI/VCI with the Tiscali people. Reply back if any issues.
