Dial-up networking (Modem)

By spudnick1 ·
I installed Win98 SE on my Dell Latitude 500 mhz laptop with a 3 COM Megahertz 3CCM756 PCMCIA modem. After the OS was installed I was able to use the modem to dial out and browse the internet. I then took it to work and docked it in it's docking station. Since then I have been unable to dial out. It seems that the modem is unable to complete the dial out process. I have tried every thing possible. Can someone please help me figure this out?

try this sometimes if other applications control your modem it will not allow you to dial out. so first I recomend you go to your modem folder in control panel and click on diag. the highlight your modem and click on more info. if you at commands back your modems fine, then try to make sure you are useing the dial adapter in network neborhood folder,

Try creating another Hardware Profile. The default profile should be copied and renamed to Modem and the original profile rename to Network. In Device Manager, remove the modem, this will prompt you to remove from a profile or all. Select to remove from the Network profile. Then remove the network card, this will prompt again. Remove the network card from the Modem profile. Reboot and select the Hardware profile for the situation you are in (Modem or Network) and try comms for that profile.
