modem not found

by Frank-MW In reply to modem not found

If your system has two serial ports, the installation program will create a com 3 or higher. Which will share resources (IRQ) with com 1 and 2.
Check the Bios of the computer you are working on.
Try to disable com2 in the Bios, if you are not using that serial port. In that way you can make sure that IRQ 3 is available.
Move the modem a PCI slot up. That might do the trick too.

Good luck, trial and error is your best approach.
