Problem with DUN or modem or ??
Posted on 1997-12-23
I just put a new motherboard and CPU in my case, keeping all my old stuff, including a drive with in 95 already installed. WIn 95, of course, wants to reinstall everything. My modem and DUN conectiod no longer function.
The modem is a USR 56k. I have removed the device and reinstalled it. Windows seems happy with the device (as per Device Manager and Modems in CP). However no program is able to use the modem (DUN, HyperTerminal or a 16 bit app). I get the error dialog that the modem is in use by another DUN or device. Disconnect that device, etc. etc.
During my troubleshooting I have found a problem with DUN. WHen I go to check the server type I get a 1/2 size dialog box (compared to what should pop up) If I try and change the type of dial-up sever I receive an error message that I haven't bound a protocol yet. If I go to Networks in CP I find that I have Client for MS Networks, TCP/IP and the Dial-up adapter. Under binding for dial-up adatper it states "TCP/IP". Under binding for TCP/IP it states "Client fr MS networks." I have deleted DUN fromthe sytem and reinstalled it, but all results are the same. I have also, although prior to this playing around, done a Win95 reinstall.
Hopefully all this makes sense. I want my modem and DUN back!
