I am having a very bad time with this new modem using this new OS. From what I can see, I may be out of luck as it seems not many modems are supported formally by Microsoft as of yet for ME and I happened to get one that wasn't.
I have read the site fairly thoroughly, but don't see any solution to the instability (machine freezing, internet games freezing, hangups) as well as it's slow connection speeds (16kps to 37kps).
I had a LAN card also in my machine, but got rid of it to prevent chances of conflict.
I tested my phone line on my old modem and it connected at just under 50kps.
Do you have any idea on how a somewhat novice modem wielder can make the thing hum? I know sometimes strings help, but don't quite know how to select them nor It is model number 3CP5699A.
Thanks for any help!!!

P.S.: I am using the Windows ME driver that comes on the Win ME CD. The other drivers (Win 98 SE or Win 2000) cause even cause more instability.

Where did you get the 5699 model #?
What does ATi7 report?
Is this an OEM modem? A Windows-only modem?

Think this is a winmodem. Some models still not supported under ME. Check the 3com website which is continually updated.
Hope this helps a bit.

UART for software modem is not reporting anything as there is no UART.
