First do you have the following:
1. Modem & Software
2. Telephone line
3. Cables
4. Internet account

If Yes, then plug in the modem into the telephone line, the modem into the PC, power on the modem. The PC should then see the new device and install the drivers or ask you for the drivers. If latter, insert the driver disk that came with the modem.
Reboot.
I'm asumming your running XP....
goto "Connect to" - "Show all connections" (Or "Control Panel" - "Network Conections")
Select Create new connection",
Select "Connect to the internet" press next
Select "Set up my connection manually" press next
Select "Connect using a dail-up modem" press next
Enter a name for the connection, this can be anything you like.
Then just follow the instructions and enter the information supplied by your ISP (Internet Provider). This would include:Username, password & telephone access number.
Hit connect and you should be up and running.

I think you've not installed the modem driver. Go to device manager, check for modems and find if modem is displaying and its driver is installed.

If not install the modem driver, then it'll start recognizing the modem.

Hope it worked for you. Thanks for using Fixya. All the best.

I can't get on the internet without a line


Ensure you have the right cable for your Internet Modem.

Your modem may not be detected if you connect the wrong cable.

Also ensure the cable is connected to the port the modem is installed so you don't encounter a conflict with another device.

I can't figure out how to set up my wireless internet.


To setup a wireless Internet connection you need the following :- 1. You need either a cable or DSL modem with a wireless router or a 3G wireless modem that connects to a 3G wireless network. 2. You need to signup with an Internet Service Provider. The Internet Service Provider may also provide this modem at a cost. 3. The Internet Service Prodider will provide an installation instructions/CD as well as E-mail setup. Have you already installed the wireless card driver on your computer? Can you give me details of what you have already done in regards with setting up the wireless access.

Internet connection problem


  • If newly installed, try uninstalling and reinstalling the device.
  • Once installed correctly, this error is unusual and may mean the device is faulty and needs to be replaced.
  • Some modems must be installed in a very precise order as dictated by the manufacturer. Be certain to closely follow the installation instructions. Consult the manufacturer's web site for a copy of the instructions or for an updated driver.
Good luck!!!!!!!!!

Installing the Yahoo Messenger 8.1 needs an Internet connection. It could be that your laptop is disconnecting to the Internet while you're installing Yahoo Messenger 8.1 that's why it will not finish the installation process.

Make sure that your laptop has a stable Internet connection before installing the YM 8.1. If you have a modem or a router, it would be better to connect it directly to the modem or to the router with an ethernet cable rather than using the wireless connection.
