    Trying to install WincomII 56.6K,PCI, modem into my Windows 98 version 2 puter. Hooked everything up rebooted and Windows failed to recognize hardware,no modem detected. Reinstalled my old Sierra 28.8K ISA modem no problem. I removed the drivers and old modem before i started installation of new modem. Any suggestions?

    I'm not 100% certain but I think you need to install the drivers for a win modem to be recognized, could be wrong though

    Doesn't recognize at all? Make sure that the card is all the way in and install drivers first, if this doesn't work it might be the sign of a bigger prob.
