I use win95 along with an Award Modular Bios v4.5 and a Maxtech XPV2881 28,000bps Voice Fax Modem.
The modem is on com3 where it works with Juno and my ISP.
However it doesn't work with dial-up networking, AT&T Worldnet, Aol or any software that requires dial-up networking.
I get the message can't find modem or it is not turned on. Even after i have just checked my email with it.
I don't know if having the modem on com3 is the problem.
Any help would be greatly appreciated

Com3 shares irq with com1 (irq 4). Can be that DUN is more sensitive to any conflict you may have?

Try this. Add a new modem to your system by going into Control Panel/Modems and click the "Add" button. Be sure to check the box "Don't detect my modem..." in the next dialogue so that you can manually choose from the list (you'll need your Win95 disk or disks for this). Try adding a "SupraFAXmodem 288i" and selecting this for your Dial-up Networking sessions. If that doesn't cut it, try "Standard 28.8" from the "(Standard Modem Types)" at the top of the manufacturers list. If you've had the modem on COM3 all along, I doubt if the port is your problem. Hope this helps.
