Re: modem

Yes! the error could be the pcmcia modem card.

A PCMCIA Card is used to connect to your laptop different components that you it doesn't have.
More information about PCMCIA
For most ISPs all you need to connect to the Internet is a network card. Check if your laptop has an integrated network card. Then contact your ISP and ask him if you need something else except a network card to connect to Internet.

Modem connection

From Page 68 of the CF19 Reference Manual:

Modem 68
<only for model with internal modem>
?? Do not use the PBX internal phone lines installed in company offices. Doing so may lead to a fire or electric shock.
?? You cannot connect the modem to the following lines.
• Interphone
• Intercoms
?? Be sure to connect the telephone cable into the modem port, not into the LAN port.
?? Use a surge protector since the modem may be damaged by a sudden high voltage surge that may occur in the event
of a lightning strike.
1 Open the cover and connect the telephone jack (A) to the computer
by using the telephone cable (included) (B).
?? Hold the cable so that the shape of the connector (C) matches the port, and
insert fully until it clicks.
2 Click [start] - [Control Panel] - [Printers and Other Hardware] -
[Phone and Modem Options] and change the settings as necessary.
?? Do not enter standby or hibernation during communications.
?? To remove the cable, press and hold the lever and pull out.

This is everything about the modem.
Good Luck

How to Connect a Mac Laptop to a Cell Phone Modem

  • 1 Connect the USB data cable to your wireless phone. This data cable is going to plug into the power port you use to charge the device. Plug the other end of the cable into an available USB port on the computer.
  • 2 Click on the blue Apple icon in the upper-left hand corner. From the drop-down menu, select "System Preferences."
  • 3 Click "Network" in "System Preferences." The Macbook is going to scan your system to see what networks are available to you. Once the Macbook has detected your wireless phone you are going to be greeted with a pop-up window stating a new port has been detected.
  • 4 Download and install the wireless modem driver for your phone. There is a link in "Resources" that has a series of different drivers. If you do not see one, you can go to your wireless phone's manufacturer's website and download the drivers directly from the site.
  • 5 Open the Finder and type "Library" in the search box. Open the Library folder, followed by "Modem Scripts." Click and drag the driver you downloaded into this window.
  • 6 Return back to "Network" in "System Preferences." Click your phone as the default modem.
  • 7 Click "PPP" and type in the account name, password and telephone number of your Internet Service Provider (this is given to you when you first create your Internet account).
  • 8 Accept the changes and you are free to start surfing the Web with your wireless phone as the modem.

    Does this notebook have a fax modem

    Which notebook? You didn't give us a brand and model number.

    Look on the sides and see if it has a port that will accept a telephone cord. If so, that's the modem port. Don't get it confused with the Network Cable port. The network cable port will be larger, but they both look the same. In fact if you tried to put the network cable into the modem port, it won't fit because the network cable is bigger than the telephone cord.

    I was given a think pad 2647 and I can't get on the internet.

    It may not detect it automatically. You will need to configure your dial up modem if you are trying to connect to the internet that way. Go into the network connections and go through the wizard there. It should ask you for the telephone number to dial for internet access so have that handy. If you don't get that box, you went to the wrong area.

    My c600 latitude

    you didn't mention the operating system but here goes how I'd handle it.

    Got to control panel, phone and modems, and remove the modem from the listing.

    Remove the Xircom Card from the system.

    Search for telephon.ini, and rename it telephon.old

    Start, run tapiini.exe, enter (You see a quick flash and nothing else)

    Reboot, let the system get to the desktop

    Re-insert the card, let it re-detect and reinstall the modem

    If the modem fails the query test in Phone and Modems again, the go to device manager, find the modem entry, right click it, select properties, see if any conflicts are listed. If any are found, post them here along with the version of Windows you are using.

    I also found this article from intel, it might be helpful

    Internet connexion

    Hello marieclaude,

    How exactly are you trying to connect? via modem, if that is the case the "disconnected" warning or notice you are seeing is probably the LAN line. That is the other port that looks like a telephone jack, but is a little bigger.

    If you can get online and there is no problem except that annoying notice you can; go to control panel, double click 'network connections', right click the 'Local Area Connection' next to it should read - disconnected, after right click - select 'disable'.

    Now you won't get that message or that box with the red x in the corner anymore. If you ever do need to connect through that port in the future, you will have to go back to control panel, follow same steps and then select - 'enable'.
