What exact problems are you having? There shouldn't be any compatibility problems when using any standard 2.5 inch SATA notebook drive in the Lenovo Thinkpad T60 providing that the operating system being installed has the device drivers needed for the drive. Lenovo publish a list of compatible drives on their web site but these are all their own drives rather than those from competitors.
If you are sure your modem drivers are installed (no YELLOW QUESTION MARKS when you access the device manager), try this;
My Computer/Right Click/Properties/Left Click/click Hardware tab/click Device Manager Tab/click Modem/go to properties/click TEST MODEM---this procedure should tell you that the modem PASSED or FAILED.
If the modem FAILED, it is defective and will need to be replaced.
Wow, a lot of information but I'm unclear as to what you are trying to do.
Are you connecting the T20 directly to the T40 using a cat5 cable and then trying to access the internet on the T20 via the modem?
Connecting the two computer together using a normal cat5 will not work, you need to use a crossover cable otherwise you are connecting the send to the send and the receive to the receive.
You can also use a hub, a switch or a router if you have any of those on hand.
As for the modem, I suggest you unplug the telephone line from the modem and plug it into a phone and see if you can hear a dial tone. If you cannot hear a tone either the extension is bad (replace) or you outlet is defective. If you can hear a tone, the modem card may be defective.
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.
Now if that is not the cas maybe you are incorrectly installing aol. Start up your aol. If it specifies broadband at login box change to dialup or go to setup and let aol automactically detect your modem. If problem still persists. Reinstall software when prompted make sure you select dialup. Now if you are using broadband and asking for dialup. Or go to the control panel and remove your modem driver, shut down and restart. It should put the modem back. Any more questions post comment.
