update on com port not closing

By smundine ·
I tried all the suggestions that everyone gave and nothing worked. I went into control panel and removed modem and all com ports, into bios and disabled com ports, I installed a new modem, nothing helps. The only thing I can do is after every modemuse, I have to remove modem from control panel and restart the computer so it can re-install modem.

I can sincerely commiserate, as I am having trouble with my modem. Could you kindly resubmit the problem, and then I (and others) can think of some more solutions.

RNAAP does not close down automatically when I disconnect. The only way I can dial in again is to either reboot or use CTRIL-ALT-DELETE and end task for RNAAP.

I'm not sure what answers were proposed at first but here goes. Take the modem out of the machine, reboot the machine without the modem and make sure you have removed all traces of the modem software, drivers etc, from the machine. Shut the system down completly. Boot and go in the bios settings, disable com2, let it boot and then shut down again. Put the modem back in machine and let the system plug-n-play it back in. test to see if it fixed the problem.

Good luck...

Thanks, this was the closest that I have come to getting it resolved. Windows 98 now recognizes my modem. The only problem I still have is that when I disconnect and try to reconnect at a later time, I can't do it unless I first hit CTRL-Alt-DELETE and end task for RNAAP.
