ClayMeow Posted February 19, 2004 Posted February 19, 2004 As i mentioned in another thread, I got a new 56k modem to replace the one i currently have, cause i thought it may be better (hopefully connect faster). Well, I set it up, installing the drivers like they said (they were NOT digitally signed, btw), and then went to connect to the internet thru NetZero, which is what I use. Well, it dials...i hear the sounds of the modem...and it apparently doesn't connect and retries the number 2 more times, before moving to another number in my list. No matter what, it wouldn't connect. In modem system properties, it said it was working properly. And it can Query when i click "Query Modem" also. I thought maybe the drivers were too old, so i reconnected my old modem to download drivers, and downloaded 3 different ones i found...wasn't sure which to use...so i tried em all. and none of em worked. 2 of 'em winXP gave me errors on with the modem, saying it wasn't working properly. So did i just get a lemon, or could it be something else? I used a different PCI slot than what i had my previous modem in because my other modem, when in that slot, used the same IRQ as my agp video card....so i wanted it to get a new IRQ alone....which it did. Could that pci slot be bad? I don't think so...it uses the same bridges and crap as all the others, right? Guess i'll just have to return it.
