Re: 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.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

It may be bad or not installed or not using the right drivers.Uninstall the modem in device manager then restart the laptop.It should reinstall it on reboot.If not go to Acer get the correct drivers including the chipset.Install the chipset first then all the others.Make sure you reboot after each driver is installed.If the modem still does'nt work it may need to be replaced at that point.
If you will be using a DIAL-UP internet for that computer, you really need a PCI dial modem for it and it will come with a setup CD that you need to run to that computer so all software will be installed for that dial up modem and that should be it....
here's some help...go to : start menu,all programmes,accessories,communications and to hyper terminal..type in test, and click o.k.,make sure all the settings are o.k., type in your mobile or your second land line number to test if the modem dials that number.if that test works then contact your i.s.p to check on your account.
All versions of Windows are affected by this error.
No dial tone: There are many possible causes of a No Dial Tone Error.
try testing the modem's ability to detect dial tone and to dial by
using HyperTerminal with the direct to COM port connect method - see
Using HyperTerminal. If you give your modem an AT&FX1 command, and
then a dial command, dial-tone detection will be disabled; if you still
do not get dial tone, the modem may not be installed correctly
(especially if it is a PCI or soft-modem); or the cable from the modem
to the phone-line jack may be bad or installed in the wrong connector
on the modem - try another line cord, and make sure you are plugged in
to the LINE - not phone - jack on the modem. Plug a regular phone into
the phone jack on the modem and make sure it has dial tone. The modem
may also be defective. Many new modems come with an electronic circuit
instead of the traditional electro-mechanical relay used to take the
modem off-hook. Some of these designs are proving less reliable; often,
they will be 'stuck' in the off-hook position, so unplugging, the
plugging in the phone cord may give dial-tone. If this is the case, the
modem needs repair or replacement.
If the modem will blind
dial (x1), but not detect dial-tone otherwise, the problem is likely to
be in the proper selection of the Country in
Windows->ControlPanel->Telephony or in improper installation of
the modem or lack of support for your country in the driver you are
using. Check to see if there are updated drivers for your modem.
the modem dials properly with detection (x3) in HyperTerminal, but does
not detect dial tone when using DUNs, the problem may be DUNs (check
for upgrade or re-install) or the proper setup and modem selection for
the DUNs connectoid.
For Embarq telephone service customers,
this error can indicate that you have a message waiting in your
voicemail. Embarq changes the dial-tone sound to a "fast" busy signal
when a new message is present in your voicemail box. This "fast" busy
signal can confuse the modem into thinking there is no-dial tone
present on the line.
The most common reason for this message is when a dial-up modem is
accessing the Internet on the same phone line. Just as two phone calls
cannot come in at the same time, two devices cannot use the phone line
at the same time.
f a broadband modem (such as DSL or ISDN)
is on the same phone line and the message appears all the time, please
contact your Internet provider for assistance. Even if a dial tone is
present when listening to the phone line, the HP product may detect the
broadband data connection at the higher line frequencies. Broadband
modems must have a line filter installed to work correctly. Contact the
telephone company for assistance.
Please follow the directions below to verify functionality.
Verify that the phone cable going into the HP fax product from the wall
jack is a two-conductor cable type, not four-conductor. A two-conductor
cable, like the one that ships with the HP product, has two copper
leads in the connector. The connectors are usually clear, making it
possible to see how many copper leads are inside the cable. Replace a
four-conductor cable with a two-conductor cable.
Disconnect the phone cable from the back of the HP product and the
message should clear. If the message does not clear, unplug the power
cable from the back of the unit, wait 15 seconds, and then plug in the
power cable. If the message persists, see the "Problem still exists"
Disconnect the phone cable from the HP product and connect it to a
single line phone. Pick up the handset and listen for a dial tone. If
no dial tone is present, replace the phone cable. If a dial tone is
still not present, a problem exists with the phone system. Continue
with the steps below if a dial tone is present.
Plug the phone cable back into the HP product and hang up any phones with a lifted handset.
Disconnect, one at a time, other phones and devices using the same
phone line. Check the HP product display after disconnecting each phone
or device. If the message clears after disconnecting a phone or device
from the line, the problem is with that phone or device.
If the message still exists after unplugging all other phones or devices, see the "Problem still exists" section below.
modems are for dial up connections not network connections you need a network interface card (nic) or a wireless card so if you are using a modem to connect to the router that will not work. period. and if you are not connected to a modem then of course it will not work ... I cant really understand what you are trying to get to with this you have a router and your computer will not connect? we need more info to help on this please
