View Full Version : installing two modems in win 2k



11-12-2001, 02:57 PM
Hello

I am running Win2000 and a Lucent LT modem for internet access. I tried to install a 2nd Lucent LT modem for Winfax, but device manager says the device 'won't start' ...I tired the modem in another slot, but then the original modem came up with the same error (2nd modem works okay at that time).
I'm guessing the modem may be faulty, but that wouldn't explain why it came right when I changed slots...

Any help greatly appreciated.

You are meeting Plug and Pray technology. I think the main problem is that you have two identical units.

The system saw something new there ... asked it what it was ... and both the modems answered.

Anthropomorphically, you confused the software.

I don't *know*, but I *think* you might have a better chance if you kept to one internal modem, and added an external one. (Or an ISA modem if you have ISA slots).
