On my window update i get error code 663


Click start control panel administrative tools computer management then select event viewer this may vary depending on what operating system you have

extend the events there you will see errors in red you will no what exactly what the error was and at what time it occured

or click start type in event viewer press ENTER

you might be able work your way through the problem

The 633 error is a connection problem that appears every time you try to use the modem on your computer.

It states "modem is already in use" and prevents you from accessing the Internet.


This problem mostly appears when a device with incompatible drivers has conflicts with the modem driver on your computer system.


The major software that causes this error is the Palm Pilot Software.

With some simple troubleshooting steps, resolve this modem communication error.


Shut down all currently running applications and restart your computer.

Press "F8" repeatedly before Windows begins to open the Windows Advanced Options Menu.


Scroll down and select "Safe Mode." Press "Enter" to log into Windows Safe Mode.

Safe Mode is used for troubleshooting and repairing system components.


Click the Windows "Start" button and select the "Control Panel."

Double-click "Add or Remove Programs" to open the programs window.


Click "Program and Features" (Windows Vista users) and select "Uninstall a Program" to open the programs window.


Click the incompatible software (e.g., Palm Desktop and Synchronization Software) and select "Change/Remove."


Click "Yes" to confirm and uninstall the program from your computer.


Restart your computer normally to complete the process.


Hope this helps

I just installed my router sitecom 300Nx2. One of my already installed communication programs which was originally working now can not connect. Please advise.


Need a bit more information here but I suspect your "communication program" used to dial using a modem and now it's needs to connect via the router

Need help to install router, westell modem already installed


Turn off the modem (unplug it). Plug the eithernet wire into the router and into the modem. Turn on the modem - when lights become stable, turn on the router. - when the lights become stable, turn on your wireless computer. Make sure your wireless is enabled. Use the wizard you will find in Networking (Control Panel).

I love Network Magic for network management, You may choose to get this program and use it. Google "Network Magic"

I hope you find this post informative.

My modem cant work


633 - The port is already in use or is not configured for Remote Access dialout

This error can occur if:

The modem is actually in use - make sure you don't have other applications that are using the modem. Applications that can use the modem include fax software, terminal software (like HyperTerminal), as well as voice software including software that can make your modem an answering machine or speakerphone.

One way of seeing all running applications is to press CTRL+ALT+DEL and look at the Task List or Task Manager. This will display the actual program names - it may be difficult to pinpoint which, if any, programs are accessing the modem. Terminating tasks are about the only way - however, if you terminate certain tasks, your system may crash or become unstable.

The telephone.ini file is missing or damaged - If the telephone.ini file is missing or damaged, you can create a new one by running Tapiini.exe - this file is in the \windows\system folder. Before you run this, rename the telephone.ini file and reboot your PC if it already exists. Then, run the tapiini.exe file. This program will run very quickly and may not appear to do anything. You can verify the program created the telephone.ini file by searching for it.

The telephone.ini file is a Microsoft Windows file that stores settings for all TAPI-enabled applications including DUNS.

Make sure the modem named in the DUNS entry matches the name of your installed modem - You can check the name of your modem in ControlPanel->Modems.

Windows 95/98 - Can occur if the Unimodem TAPI file (unimdm.tsp) is missing or damaged. See MS KB Q150619

Windows XP - Can occur if another device's driver has a conflict with the modem driver. MS KB 324760 indicates this can occur with older Palm Desktop HotSynch Software.
