View Full Version : How do I remove Lucnet Modem?

I am running XP Professional on my PC and whenever it crashes, Lucnet Modem dispalys as the default modem on my PC.

I have a Diamond Voice 56SE External Modem connected to my PC.

Whenever my PC crashes, I have to reload the DV56SE driver via the 'Phone and Modem Option' in 'Settings', 'Control Panel'.

How do I remove all reference to the Lucnet Modem from my PC so as to stop this annoying habit of having to reload the correct driver?

Um...You should fix the cause not the symptom.... by that I mean stop your system from crashing.

Otherwise are you sure after the crash you can't just being up the dialup dialog and then select the desired modem from the drop down list? (Little triangle on the right of the selected modem).

To disable the modem completely go into modems in control panel and remove it, then maybe jump into device manager and disable it.

Personally I would break out the trusty screwdriver and remove it properly.

Lucent are one of the better soft modems so its worth keeping.

There is no "physical" Lucnet modem to remove from my PC :(

Whenever I have a crash, the DV Modem's driver disappears from my system and only the Lucnet driver is displayed :(

I then have to reinstall the DV driver.

Make sense??

Have a look at DV56SE FAQ 16 (http://www.mitsubishi-electric.com.au/CUSTOMER/FAQ/dvmfaq001a.htm#1.6).

Why is you computer crashing, what error messages are you getting.

It is one of those things you have to live with as even from the Mitsibushi site (http://www.mitsubishi-electric.com.au/downloads/modems/dvmdl14.htm), it states that XP detects that modem as a "Lucent Venus Modem PNP".

Maybe the advise to find and stop the crash would be the work-around. It does sound like the crash is tied-up with the modem, as it seems to lose the driver you put in and revert to what it thinks it should be. Have you seen if there are any updated drivers for your modem?
