    I have a nokia 3585i phone that I use as a modem with my hp winXP desk top. I am trying to install it to our NEC ready 340T laptop win98SE to use it as a modem. When I try to dial up, it gives error 678, cannot connect to remote computer. I have checked to make sure everything is installed properly, and diagnosed the modem with everything coming up ok. Have no trouble on the desk top. any body have a solution for me? thanks.
