Question about Computers & Internet
The fact that the modem is not listed means that your system doesnt have a built-in modem. This would leave you with either a wireless network card or an ethernet card or both.
If you see an RJ45 jack in the back or side of your computer then you have an Ethernet card. RJ45 is like a telephone line jack except its slightly bigger. The other wa to tell is go to >Device Manager>look for and double click on "Network Adapters". You will see either or both network card type: one will have "wireless" in its description and the other will have "Ethernet" somewhere in its description.
If any of this card has a Yellow exclamation next to it then you need to update or re-install its driver. Red x means disabled so enable it.
You may need to go to your system model or vendors ( Dell, HP, Gateway, etc.) web site to download the driver that Windows doesn't provide.

You must install the driver software if it in not listed in --- go to "My computer" >> "Properties" >>"Hardware" >> "Device Manager" >> "Modems" make sure that modem is visible in the list if so , insure that it is not showing with a red icon... if it is ... then install the driver from the modem driver CD....
