View Full Version : Modem responses

17-10-2002, 09:18 AM
Modem works perfectly after system startup - once. After disconnecting from server, a subsequent attempt to connect to server gets response of ...unable to find modem, may be disconnected, etc.
A restart of the system activates the modem again.
Thus, every use of the internet requires a start-up of the system.
All obvious checks through Settings, etc show modem okay. All drivers have been updated.

Thanks for interest:
Windows98, second ed.
Modem is a new Dick Smith's DSE 56K - PCI Int HAM (An Intel)
(It is a replacement - the first one, purchased a few weeks ago, did the same thing and I took it back to DSE and they willingly changed it for another - the one I'm currently using. It appears that the modem is okay).

Could be a change in dialing properties, after disconnecting. Happened to me when I clicked on MSN browser...it had automatically changed the dialing properties for my modem...
