Note: If you're asking for technical help, please be sure to include all your system info, including operating system, model number, and any other specifics related to the problem.
My first guess is that Windows 2000 isn't properly installed. Try installing the latest motherboard chipset drivers. I copied the forum note since without those details I can't be more specific.
One of my old PCs finally died a while back, and the other day I received a replacement I ordered online, which uses Win2kPro.
Unfortunately it didn't come with a modem installed.
I installed a "NetoDragon 56k Voice Modem", but am for some reason unable to connect to the internet using MSN 8.
I installed MSN 8 and chose "I've already signed up", and was immediately greeted with the following error message;
"We're sorry, we cannot sign you up for MSN because there is a problem with your computer or the MSN service. Please try again later."
The driver for the modem is installed, and I can use the "Internet Connection Wizard" which successfully connects to the "Microsoft Internet Referral Service", so apparently the modem is working.
I've never had to install a modem on a computer, having had them already installed when I bought them, and thus have absolutely no idea what to do here.
Can anyone help with this problem?
