I have installed the 56k voice internal PCI modem into my Windows 2000 system. The modem was successfully recognised and the drivers which were supplied were loaded.

The modem is able to dial out. However the first 2 times I tried to dial my ISP it connected with reported rates of 28.8bps and 50.6bps. On both occasions the modem was unable to send or receive any data. Subsequent attempts to connect stalled at the "verifying username and password" stage of connection. My details have not been changed as I was previously able to connect with a sportster x2 flash upgraded to v.90 under NT4 and I have simply upgraded to Win 2000.

Using hyperterminal I was able to dial out using the PCI modem again, however about 5 seconds after connecting to a remote number it would autiomatically disconnect. Hyperterminal would display the message "busy". The "disconnect if idle" option is not selected in modem properties.

The modem seemed to install on COM3 and IRQ9 (which is shared with several other devices) but there is no conflict report. I manually changed the modem properties to COM2 but this made no difference. COM2 was not displayed as installed under Device Manager / Ports. This listed only COM1 as installed - even when the modem was installed on COM3 (I know they share the same IRQ)

I am using the supplied cable and adapter to connect to my analogue phone line. The line is obviouly good enough to support a 3com modem as it was connecting every time without problems using my old sportster under NT4.

Do you have any advice?

What country are you in?
Have you selected it in Telephony?
