I upgraded from Win98se to Win Me about 2 weeks ago. I had a Netcomm56k-v 90 modem,, after the upgrade , I found a new modem----Win Lucent running on my system--now what the heck is that and how did it get there?Is that a built in modem as Windows seems to recognize it, and if so, does the modem work off the processor? I understood hardware modems have their own chip.I am unable to re-install my Netcomm 56k, so any advice would be appreciated. with anticipated thanks, Mermaid

When you upgraded, winme went through a hardware check and configuration. The modem was detected by its chipset i.e. Lucent and drivers loaded for that type of modem. You can remove the modem from device manager and install it manually from the add hardware wizard. When you say you cannot reinstall your Netcomm modem, do you mean you do not have a driver for the installation, or do you mean you have never installed a modem before? If you do not have the disk, you should be able to go the mgf’s web site and download the appropriate driver. It may be necessary to open the case and visually check for a model number on the modem.
Is the modem working ok and all functions available? If so I would just leave it alone. As long as it is working don’t mess with it.
