Internet connection error 734 extra initialization command does not work.it leads to another error 692.


692 - Hardware failure in port or attached device.
This behavior can occur if any of the following conditions exists:
  • The modem is turned off or malfunctioning.
  • If you have an external modem, the serial cable is incorrectly wired.
  • If you have an external modem, the serial cable is not securely connected or has open connections.
  • The serial port or multiport adapter on the RAS server or client is malfunctioning.
  • The handshaking options for the modem are incorrectly configured.
  • The modem is unsupported, or the chosen emulation may be incorrect.
  • The modem .inf files become corrupted or the modem driver becomes corrupte
To solve this problem, use the appropriate method:
  • Reset your modem. Consult the documentation for information about how to reset the modem.
  • If you have an external modem, make sure that you are using the correct serial cable. For more information about requirements for proper cabling, refer to the "Cabling Requirements" section in Dial-Up Networking Help.
  • If you have an external modem, make sure that the serial cable is connected securely.
  • If you are using a pin adapter to connect your external modem to your serial port, make sure that the pin adapter is wired properly for modem communication. For example, a 9- to 25-pin adapter for a mouse does not work properly with an RAS serial setup.
  • Test the serial port or multiport adapter, and replace the adapter if necessary.
  • Make sure that the handshaking options for the modem are configured properly. Consult the documentation for information about the different handshaking options that are available for your modem.
  • Contact the modem manufacturer to see if any setup and initialization information is available for your modem. Also, check the latest Windows hardware compatibility list (HCL) to make sure that your modem is supported.
  • Use Device Manager to remove the modem. You can do this in safe mode or in normal mode. Restart the computer in normal mode. Windows will redetect the modem and reinstall the correct drivers.

How do you replace an internal modem on Dell Dimension 5100 desktop? Can we replace it with an external modem? Do you have to remove the old internal modem before you can replace it with an external modem?...


yes you can replace it with an external modem or you can purchase a PCI card modem and install it. The old internal modem does not have to be removed, but if it helps you can uninstall the drivers for it.

Need help picking an external modem for an old Dell Insprion 2500


Any computer capable of running Windows ME is capable of supporting any external modem.

In the past, for "internal" modems, there were "hardware" modems and "soft" modems.
The "soft" modems had 50% of the hardware of the "hardware" modem,
and the rest of the "brains" of the modem were embedded
in a software device-driver that gets installed into Windows.

Fortunately, most external modems are *NOT* such "soft" modems.

There do exist external modems that connect to a USB port,
and external USB wireless-devices, if you want a higher-speed connection.
