    Got an older PC from someone that used to have a high speed internet setup and trying to connect using MSN dial up. but getting "Modem not found" errors occuring during setup for internet dial up service. The modem is in COM 4 slot and phone line is connnected to it, but PC is not recognizing. Is the PC maybe looking to the Ethernet port since the previous owner had a high speed connection with a possible external modem? How do I change the setup to recognize the modem in COM 4? The OS is Windows ME.
    Have no contact with previous owner anymore, so can't ask them for help.

    Hi kunfuzed,

    Welcome to TSG.

    I hate to start with questions but.....
    What is your OS, which ISP are you trying to connect to and what modem are you using ?

    Windows ME and the modem (found in the SYSTEM properties) is an Intel HaM Data Fax Voice Modem.

    You may need to set up a new dial up connection using this modem.

    Go to My Computer > Dial up Networking. Double click on make new connection. Select your modem when prompted to. Provide the details asked for. Use this new connection to get on to the net.
