Need to change port speed for dial up internet connection

I need to change the port speed but when I go into the control panel to the modem properties, it will not let me change it. It won't even highlight it. It appears "fixed" on 115200 speed. How can I change this? please help!

You don't need to change the port speed, the one that it is using is the correct setting. This allows for maximum burst speed for compressed data transfer.

My laptop is HP. With windows 8 I need to turn off broadband ?? To connect WiFi lan setting only..No dial up


If your HP has a Wireless adapter - should have - you should connect to WiFi as soon as you start up your computer. Some start up WiFi throgu a compination of function keys, you should check your keyboard and your user's manual.
I don'r Understand what do you mean by "connect WiFi Lan settingg". WiFi is not the same as LAN. LAN is the cdirect conection to a broadband modem and if your LAN port is coonected through a cable to your modem, you connect to Interent at startup,
No dial up? I'm not sure if anywhere in civilized wold anyone with a computer still uses a dial up Internet modem.

How do you get the ezbook pc windows embedded CE6.0 to connect to internet via dial up. Have a service, pulgged it up and unable to connect.


Dial up requires a modem instead of a LAN card. It uses an RJ-11 phone plug and not the bigger RJ-45 LAN plug. You also need a dial up internet service provider, and possibly software to make the phone call. There is a Connections setup in Internet Options, under Control Panel if you don't have the software.

So, you are right on track. Just make the call and enter the user name and password to finalize connection.

The Agere systems HDA modem is a 56kbps modem typically found on laptops. View it in device manager.

Start->Control Panel->System->Device Manager->Modems

Should be listed there. See if there is an exclamation mark next to it.

Not very expensive or difficult to replace

How to connect my dell dial up modum to lap top


Your dial up modem needs to be ab external modem.
You can not use an internal modem from another machine unless you create a network and share your connection.
If you have an external modem then connect the modem to the available port on your laptop and let plug and play take over. If you do not have a port on your laptop and you modem has a serial port you will need a usb to serial adapter which you can get at Radio Shack.

Does my new Emachine laptop have no dial up modem?


Correct. It's looking for a standard dialer modem. You may just need to go through the internet connection wizard and define how you want to connect. With a wireless adapter, you could locate and connect to internet with that instead of a dial-up modem. Internet connetion wizard comes with Vista and XP and is found: Start > Control Panel > Network connections.

I CAN'T CONNECT THE MODEM TO MY ACER


Disconnect the modem from the phone socket and connect a normal phone to this outlet. If you cannot get a dial tone and cannot dial out, then there is a fault with this socket. You need to get it repaired before you can dial out and conect to the Internet.

why fight it , let it be on com 1 then,
go into the bios and disable the serial ports .
that may be the easiest fix as long as you don't need the serial port for anything.
but if you have a serial mouse oh boy.
