Re: cant dial up

Windows XP normally picks up the modem and installs its drivers it knows what brand the modem is and has a vast selection in store. You said you checked the hardware and there was no info I imagine that was in the systems folder where the device manager is?. Did you query the modem in the diagnostic and still had no info.....are you sure the modem is in the computer it may have been removed???

I recently bought TATA Olive VME101 Dialer. The guy from TATA Photon installed it on Windows XP Professional but I was not getting proper signal. It worked hardly for 15 minutes! So he uninstalled it......

same problem i had faced in Windows XP. follow this procedure.
uninstall previously installed driver. restart your computer. wait till win xp finishes booting. then plug in the modem. Check whether device is recognized as CD drive in your computer. cancel the find hardware wizard. double click to open the newly installed drive and run set up.exe. after installing unplug the device.reboot the computer and plug in again to enjoy the internet.

I have tried in vain to get the USB connection on my Westell 6100 to work. Are there some tricks to making this happen? The ethernet connection will work fine, but I cannot get the USB setup to work at...

I suggest that you use ethernet connection instead of the USB connection.

Ethernet is more stable that USB, you less likely to experience dropped connections.

Also take note that you can only use one connection at a time. You CANNOT use Ethernet on one computer, then USB on the other computer.

But if you insist to use the USB connection, you need to install the drivers. Once the usb cable is connected to the modem and computer, you will get a found new hardware wizard screen. Then you will need to insert the CD that came with the adapter to your computer.

If the found new hardware wizard did not appear, check your device manager and look if there is a USB adapter with a question mark or exclamation point. Right click on the USB adapter then click reinstall.

It should detect the drivers from the cd.

Good luck and have a great day!

HP USB Modem does not break dial tone

If the information connected to your post is all correct (56k V90 usb), and you are using one line for both the internet and the fax, you should hang up from the internet before you try to dial out the fax.

You have not indicated your PC model, so I don't know what operating system you are using. For XP and newer versions, you have to set up and configure the fax using the wizard or configuration software. If you have not done that yet, you need to.

In xp, go to start, Programs , Accessories , Communication , Fax , and then click Fax Console.

You said your computer is new. Win 7 and Vista are much the same:

1.Click the Start button , click All Programs, and then click Windows Fax and Scan.

2.At the bottom of the left pane, click Fax, and then click New Fax on the toolbar to launch the Fax Setup wizard.

3.Click Connect to a fax modem and follow the instructions.

You also need to make sure that your fax/modem is correctly listed in the control panel. In XP, start, control panel, printers and devices. If you do not have a fax printer listed, you need to "install a local fax printer."

The installation wizard should work in both OS without much trouble. If you do have difficulty, Microsoft and adobe both have "virtual printers" you can use. Look in Microsoft office or online.

Also check control panel of 7 to make sure that your modem and fax are listed correctly. Thanks for using Fixya.

SYMPTOMS loadTOCNode(1, 'symptoms'); When you try to establish a dial-up connection after you upgrade your computer to Microsoft Windows XP from Microsoft Windows 98, from Microsoft Windows 98 Second Edition, or from Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition (Me), you may receive an error message that is similar to one of the following: Error 721: The remote computer is not responding. Error 678: The remote computer failed to respond. Error 691: Access was denied because the user name and/or password was invalid on the domain. Error 777: The connection attempt failed because the modem or other connecting device on the remote computer is out of order. To resolve this issue, contact the hardware manufacturer to inquire about how to obtain and install the latest Windows XP-compatible driver for the modem or download an XP driver for the modem

Wireless internet connection

I may be able to help with this...but I need a detailed description of how you have things connected between the XP desktop, the cable, modem, the Linksys router, and the laptop. Also, is the Linksys router new?

Typically, the wan port on the wireless router connects directly to the cable modem with a cat5 network cable....then the desktop pc connects to the router...on port 1 for example...with a similar cable. Once the wireless router is set up properly, the laptop should then be able to connect using wireless.

Acer 56 kbps v.92 modem...i cant install modem

Hello there, sounds to me like a softwere problem. Try downloading the drivers again from the website of the make of the modem. Install them again - if you're getting the same message after, Download anti-virus FREE AVG you can find this at this link for windows: Install this run it on a test see what it says and you may find your problem. if not then you could do a deep clean and fully re-install windows xp - REMEMBER TO BACK-UP ANY FILES YOU WANT TO KEEP BEFORE DOING SO. in the meantime good luck Raverbaby keepin it hardcore!!!!! = (htid) hardcore till i die !
