I was online (dial_up) and the computer froze..(i believe because somone on another computer tried logging on and booted me off). upon reboot of my computer everything appeared fine, however when i tried to connect to the internet again it said "modem not found". The modem and ports are missing from the device manager. I am having this problem on my acer 5100 series notebook. What are some suggestions to remedy this problem.

Re: modem not detected
Go to the Control Panel, open the Phone & Modems Options folder, click on Modems, delete the modem listed, restart your computer and if you are ljucky, Win will 'find' new headware and reinstall the software for it.
The 'Win' modems aren't the 'real thing;' they use your main processor, a few components to facilitate connection to the phone line and a program that tells your processor (CPU) how to act like a modem.
You may also have to reinstall whatever dialer you use if it was supplied by your ISP.
There could be additional problems but if they show up, just let us know how they manifested - error messages, etc.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Try to make a new connection shortcut and make sure your telephone line is properly connected on your modem. Also make sure that your password and username is correct. another thing is check that your system date is correct.. Hope this works ! ITTech7574
This problem can
be due to the software not handling a certain dial tone rather than a
specific hardware fault. Around the world there is a variance in the
signal quality of the dial tone which causes a report of no dial tone
detection. Disable the dial tone detection to prevent the system from
trying to detect a dial tone.
Disabling dial tone detection for modems: Windows XP
Select Control Panel
Click Switch to Classic View to change the control panel view
Click Phone and Modem Options
Select the Modem Tab
Select the installed modem (Example: Lucent Technologies Soft Modem AMR)
Click the Properties button
Select the Modem tab in the Properties window
Click Wait for dial tone before dialing to remove the check from the checkbox
Select the Advanced tab
Add X3 to the Extra initialization commands field in the Extra Settings box
Click OK twice
Select Switch to Category View to change back the control panel view
Close Control Panel
if this does not work trying re-installing modem drivers.

All versions of Windows are affected by this error.
No dial tone: There are many possible causes of a No Dial Tone Error.
try testing the modem's ability to detect dial tone and to dial by
using HyperTerminal with the direct to COM port connect method - see
Using HyperTerminal. If you give your modem an AT&FX1 command, and
then a dial command, dial-tone detection will be disabled; if you still
do not get dial tone, the modem may not be installed correctly
(especially if it is a PCI or soft-modem); or the cable from the modem
to the phone-line jack may be bad or installed in the wrong connector
on the modem - try another line cord, and make sure you are plugged in
to the LINE - not phone - jack on the modem. Plug a regular phone into
the phone jack on the modem and make sure it has dial tone. The modem
may also be defective. Many new modems come with an electronic circuit
instead of the traditional electro-mechanical relay used to take the
modem off-hook. Some of these designs are proving less reliable; often,
they will be 'stuck' in the off-hook position, so unplugging, the
plugging in the phone cord may give dial-tone. If this is the case, the
modem needs repair or replacement.
If the modem will blind
dial (x1), but not detect dial-tone otherwise, the problem is likely to
be in the proper selection of the Country in
Windows->ControlPanel->Telephony or in improper installation of
the modem or lack of support for your country in the driver you are
using. Check to see if there are updated drivers for your modem.
the modem dials properly with detection (x3) in HyperTerminal, but does
not detect dial tone when using DUNs, the problem may be DUNs (check
for upgrade or re-install) or the proper setup and modem selection for
the DUNs connectoid.
For Embarq telephone service customers,
this error can indicate that you have a message waiting in your
voicemail. Embarq changes the dial-tone sound to a "fast" busy signal
when a new message is present in your voicemail box. This "fast" busy
signal can confuse the modem into thinking there is no-dial tone
present on the line.
Are you trying to set up router ? You can set up your router manually, without the CD. Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem. If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine. You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router. open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.
