I am trying to get an external DSL modem connected to my Compaq. It is connected via a USB port. However after setting up it is telling me that the communication port is invalid or busy. It is a AOL setup. I tried removing my internal modem figuring that it may be trying to access a DSL line via 56k modem.

Any suggestions?

I have 2 USB ports in the back of the computer that is being used by the keyboard and printer.

I plugged the DSL modem into one of the ports located on the front of the computer. The computer did recognize the plug n play. However I am still unable to get on.
