Sounds like a hardware problem

First > try changing the modem port (default is com3, try changing it to com4 or com5 whichever is free)

Try querying the modem again

Second > Contact your modem manufacturer

I cant figure out how to connect my jornada to my pc.. can you help?


Hi,

Are you connecting from dock to USB on computer, or serial to USB via a USB-serial adapter? UBS-serial adapters are notorious for not recognizing attached serial hardware. What kind of errors are the Jornada and the computer throwing? Can you give any specific error numbers?

If you are connecting using the serial cable to a serial port on your computer you need to make sure that the Jornada is trying to connect to the correct COM port (and that the computer is allowing connections through the correct COM port). Do this by:
1. Open Device Manager (R-Click on My Computer - Properties - Hardware - Device Manager)
2. Expand the "Ports (COM)" plus sign
3. Beside each COM port's name it will say (COM#) - the # tells you which port the COM is
4. Go into ActiveSync and open Connection Settings (in the File menu in ActiveSync 4.5 - the latest)
5. Make sure all the check boxes are checked and that the correct number COM port is selected in the drop down menu under "Allow connections to one of the following:"
6. Connect your Jornada via the serial cable, make sure the Jornada is on and connected to power cable (I have had more success with the power on - may or may not affect your problem)
7. Click the "Connect..." button in ActiveSync. The Jornada should be detected.

If your computer has an infrared port you could try that, I have had a lot of success with infrared connections with my Jornada. Also, try installing ActiveSync on another computer that has a serial port and try connecting the Jornada to that computer. It may be a problem with your computer.

An older version of ActiveSync should not make a difference. The facilities are the same, just slightly rearranged.

The ZTE modem when initially connected to any system loads as a storage device which contains the software necessary to install the modem. Connect the ZTE and open it in Explorer. Double click the setup file (.exe) to start installation. Follow instructions and allow installation to complete. The modem is automatically installed during this setup. Once completed restart and then your ZTE functions as a modem.

EpiValley CDMA USB Modem(SXC 1280)


usually if you call up the properties page for your modem from the hardware manager these is a diagnostics option. this will allow you to check that WINDOWS can operate it

A problem here indicates a possible driver or hardware connection error

If there is more than one modem listed (as would be the case with blue-tooth or a cell phone) then make sure you select the correct one and then select properties.

My computer shows a total of 6 modems due to the complexity of mobile communication devices etc

A new box will open that has a few tabs and the one you are interested in is "diagnostic" click that then "query modem"

If all is good you should see some information about your modem and its capability come up.

If not you need to double check you drivers and mae sure the modem is plugged into the same port that you first installed it on as some usb devices don't like being switched about.


Also make sure that it is plugged directly into the computer as sometimes these types of device don't like hubs. if it will work with a hub then ensure the hub has ITS OWN POWER SUPPLY !

Hi,

BlackBerry 8350i does not support "Phone as Modem" straight out of the box :(

Your best solution would be to try Shark Modem. It's a BlackBerry application that allows you to use your BlackBerry modem. 8350i BlackBerry Modem Application

Modem in use


Try the following:

-Open the Control Panel
-Open System
-Click on Device Manager
-Click on Modems
-Highlight and right click on the listed modem
-Select Uninstall

Close out anything open and Restart.

IF (!) Windows is cooperating, it should 'find a new device' and reinstall the Winmodem (it's only software and a little telephone line matching).

If Windows fails to recognize the 'new device,' you will have to manually reinstall it via the 'add new hardware' path in the Control Panel.

As with any Windows stuff - rotsa ruck!

Modem and port


You will normally need the device driver to install the modem. I suggest find the driver and reinstall it as it is not detected as a supported device by windows.
