Question about Hawking Data/Fax PN612 (PN612ES) Modem

1 Answer

PC Laptop does not recognize the inserted modem in order to use the internet

My PN612 pcmcia fax/modem has been working well on my Dell laptop for several months until now. The laptop is not reading the modem although I insert the card fully in the bay and even restart. What's happening? A friend suggested initializing the modem. Is this the only solution to get it working again (and how do I go about doing this when I have no initializing code) or is there a simpler and more obvious way that I am missing altogether? -The Dell is using Windows XP Home Edition w/Service Pack2 -The CD software for the modem is already installed (since the modem worked before). Do I need to uninstall and reinstall the modem software? Help! Coffeemaker

Yes..modems are tricky ..uninstall it let the puter find it then insert the software. if at any time u have to select a port for it u failed. it should automaticly select it. then after restart u go to control panel /modem/ and look to see if u have it there there/ next select properties/ modems/diagnistics/ query you should see alot jibbersh letters... then you know its working u might want to do the last first.

I guess my asus dosent have internal modem I want to see the list of asus that have internal modem

Access the manufacturer's web-site: and scroll-through the list of their computers, and read the specifications.

Or, look on eBay for a "PCMCIA V.90 modem", assuming that you have an empty/unused PCMCIA slot in your computer.
Insert the modem-card into the PCMCIA slot -- now you have a modem.

Install drivers for ethernet card or buy a usb to ethernet adapter. That will get you on the net so you can install your other drivers via thinkvantage installer. Or you can just cruise the net with the usb to ethernet adapter itself.

What type of pcmcia slot is on the hp pavilion dv6000.?

Most laptops have Type II PCMCIA slots. Some laptops have one slot, others have two slots. For details read the following :-

  • Type I cards can be up to 3.3 mm thick, and are used primarily for adding additional ROM or RAM to a computer.
    • Type II cards can be up to 5.5 mm thick. These cards are often used for modem and fax modem cards.
  • Type III cards can be up to 10.5 mm thick, which is sufficiently large for portable disk drives. As with the cards, PCMCIA slots also come in three sizes:
  • A Type I slot can hold one Type I card
    • A Type II slot can hold one Type II card or one Type I card
  • A Type III slot can hold one Type III card or any combination of two Type I or II cards.

    Pcmcia slot seems to not work

    Right click on My Computer (it's on the Start Menu), and select "Properties". Click on the "Hardware" tab, and then the "Device Manager" button. The PCMCIA bridge should be listed, with a circle with slash through it, just right click on it, and select "Enable".
