Can't open Com 3 to connect to internet

I recently bought 2nd hand Toshiba A10 laptop which has a modem on com port 3 but when I try to connect the computer says it can't open the port. We are on dial up. Also we have no manual and OS needs to be activated soon.
There is no conflict showing in Device Manager.
Cheers
Sam

Hi,

I got your issue, I hope you are trying to connect the 2nd router to the first router through LAN-LAN connection (i.e, LAN port of the first router is connected to the LAN port of the 2nd router)

Then you need to change the ipaddress of the 2nd Play Wireless router . Please follow these steps.

1. Connect the computer-router with ethernet cable and open up internet explorer and clear the address box and type in 192.168.2.1 and hit enter.

2. You will be logged into the Belkin router setup page, in the Left hand side under LAN setup click on LAN settings

3. It will ask for Login password, leave it blank and click on submit

4. Change the LAN ipaddress from 192.168.2.1 to 192.168.5.1 and click ok

5. The page will say cannot be displayed, then clear the address box and type in http://192.168.5.1 and hit enter

6. If your first router is connected to the internet , then automatically the internet status will says connected

7. You will be able to go online wired

Good Luck!
Thanks in Advance!

Regards,
Prema

I have recently bought an EPC netbook, internet problems


3 mobile are correct. You cannot use the USB modem dongle that 3 supply to access the internet. That dongle requires application software to allow internet programs to access the port and so access the modem in the dongle. Windows CE does not allow this access. Find out which modem chip is in the dongle and google the name of the chip, this should lead you to a driver which you can use through CE although you may have to reconfigure the 3 dongle..

Have you re-installed the proper drivers?

Make sure you have all from the Driver drop-down list.


Just as an aside, if you are using ADSL, why are you bridging through COM? Just curious.

Modem


To access the ports you mean via the control panel.  If it is an internal modem then XP would automatically install it as a hardware providing it is connected to the motherboard.  I detected you saying that you rebuilt the PC.  Have you slotted an internal modem into one of the periferal slots or did it use an external modem.  Did you know you dont need a modem to logon to the net unless your dialing up? But if you use broadband most use an external modem that connects fast ethernet connection.  But I suppose you know this after all you rebuilt the machine.
