pci lucent modem on w98

By mapalmis ·
after reinstalling w98se my lucent internal modem
dials numbers but does not negotiate. answer is either "disconnected from the pc you're dialing"
or "line busy".
correct driver already installed but still doesn't work. also phone is cut off whenever I plug the modem in.
any ideas?
thank you

If your phone quits working when its plugged into the modem, it may be a problem with the phone cable. Try using a 'known good' cable between the phone outlet and the modem.

I have had the same problem and it ended up being a bad modem. It would dial out but not connect. after replacing the modem the user had no problems.

Try a new modem and see what happens.

Dealt with problem this past Thursday. The modem would sometimes dial but it would not get any further than that. If it did connect it would not get past init stage. Most of the time after that I would have to power off/on the system before the modem would work again. I read an article about flashing the modems firmware but I just popped another modem in the system and moved on with my life, this will drive you crazy.
