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:

  • 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.

  • 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.

I have a computer, a all-in-one printer, a phone line, and a cable modem. how do i make this work? there is no phone jack in the modem.


Okay... Let's see if I can help you out.

Yes, your cable modem should have a phone jack on it. Are you sure it's a modem and not a router? Do you have phone service through your cable company? If so, your modem should be phone ready. Just checking..... :-)

The first thing you want to do is get your computer completely set up and ready to run (do not turn on yet). Just make sure all components are plugged in. Everything should be color coded and different sizes & shapes making it virtually impossible to cross anything accidentally. Your mouse and keyboard should be the only two components having the same kind of connection but they are color coded on the connectors and behind the computer too. No worries!!! :-)

Next, get your modem hooked up. Plug in power cord and attach cable wire into the back of the modem. Next you'll need an Ethernet wire to go from the back of your modem to your computer. If you're not familliar with ethernet - it looks like a phone cord only bigger.

Next get your printer wires hooked up to your computer as per directions for your specific unit. Should be fairly simple.

Once you have everything connected, power up your modem. Once it's finished booting up, turn on your computer. Once your computer is completely finished booting up, Turn on your all-in-one. Your computer should now be showing...Found New Hardware. Follow on screen prompts.

I hope this info was helpful to you. If you do need further assistance don't hesitate to ask. If needed, I'll give you my # so I can walk you through it over the phone.

Good Luck!

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.

My modem


Returning the computer to Gateway is the most reliable option, but unless you have the premium grade warranty this will be expensive.
You can buy a replacement from Best buy, but if it is for a laptop I would recommend either an external modem or a PCMCIA modem. Opening up a laptop is a job for an expert. If you have a desktop/tower PC then you can buy an external or an internal Modem, Only but the Internal modem if you feel confident about opening up the PC. The external modem is the safest to buy. You will need to check what connections you have on the back of your PC either a serial connector or nowadays a USB connection. Make sure the modem you buy is appropriate to the service you use e.g. dial up or DSL. The assistant in Best Buy should be able to help you with that.

This should fix it .

Need to install a modem on a Quick Eagle 4200T CSU


C-NOS:
Basically the modem has to dial in first to give you connection, One end goes to the Phone wall socket and the other end to your computer.
-Now in your case I am sure that your router is a DSL router meaning have no capability of dialing on command from the external modem.
-Nowadays VOIP built in routers are much more capable of dialing numbers directly.
-Old dialing modems should be connected directly from computer to the wall jack (phone lines).
Hope that helped!
