Re: modem gone

In reply to: modemn working windows dont relize it

It could be a hardware problem that came at the same time as your uninstalling aol, but that's not likely.

I suggest you remove the modem from device manager, then reinstall as you did the first time. There's a good chance it will appear again.

Hope this helps.

1.start-settings-control panel-modems, go to the diagnostics tab, 1 left click to hilite the Com port and modem as listed, click on "more info" bar. If ok, there will be a list of AT commands and results.
2. You must have the W98SE install CD or have the cab files in Windows\options\cabs.
Start-settings-control panel-add/remove programs-center tab "windows setup", communications listing, uncheck dialupnetworking, OK, restart PC. Go back to same place and checkmark dialupnetworking, restart PC.
Try again to "add new connection" IF you have the right ISP info to plug in.
