View Full Version : Modem stays on 'Initializing'

I have a second hand Modem that seems to pass all the test in the diagnostic section of Win 95 Modem propertise in control panel.
When trying to send a fax from Microsoft Exchange or dial a connection from MSworks 4 communications they both give the message Modem Initializing, and that's where it stays, it will not dial out.
I hade to change some jumper settings back to the modems default,com 4, because it came out of a computer that had it set for com 1, I have double cheked the jumpers they seem to be correct and the computer can communicate with the modem, as it has been able to set it up succefully in the add new modem wizard of Win 95.
Is it possible I may need to set the S registers back to Factory settings, perhaps they were changed to make it function on com 1? I don't know, just a guess.
