Megahertz Modem, Toshiba laptop, Win 95

Toshiba Satellite 2115CS, purchased with Win 3.11 and Megahertz PCMCIA XJ1124 14,400 modem, Faxworks software.  Upgraded Win 95B, Netscape Communicator. Modem/Netscape work, Win PCMCIA controller recognizes modem but cannot do diagnostics (Control Panel, Modem, More Info), Faxworks won't recognize modem, other software needing modem won't recognize/initialize.  Why?  On Net, have been to tech support for MHZ, Toshiba, Phoenix (card Services) and Win95 forums.  No luck.

maybe your irq has a confilict of some sort. check on your system devices and make sure that they are a ok :)

jhance: i think, what he means about modem/netscape work is it's working before he upgraded with windows 95 upgrade because netscape has a native dialer in win3.1

   Nasty problem with those card services...  I don't know about the diagnostics.  Is it saying port is in use?  It may be your faxworks causing that problem.  Otherwise, you'll probably find that all your 32bit software works great with the modem, and all your 16bit software can't find it.  If anybody knows a solution, I'd like to hear it...  I think windows will reject any 16bit card services... I don't know, maybe not.

Through installing/uninstalling various software I isolated the problem to the Faxworks driver, fx-comm.drv. Megahertz suggested I purchase newer software which I may do if they can guarantee it works with Win95. Nebworth's comment was mostly correct but I don't think the part about pc cards not working with 16-bit software is true because I use a Real Estate program that my partner has on her Win 3.1 system and I on my Win 95 system and it works on both systems--except when Faxworks is installed. So the culprit is Faxworks and it is not fixable except with new software. But I'd give megigraf and nebworth 50 points because a) megigraf recognized that jetx needed more information and nebworth was the closest to the right answer.

I hope the new software wourld really solve the problem.  Tell them that if it won't work you will send them back the software.

As for the points, you could do the following:
e-mail: linda@experts-exchange.com
Ask her to refund you back the points, cause you would like to split them between nebworth and myself.
Then once credited post 2 new questions labeled:

For nebworth only (assign 50 points to the question)
in the body: here is the points

Do the same for me: (magigraf)
Thanks & Regards

I'm blocking the question on purpose, until Linda could delete it.

I graded this question giving magigraph the points assigned to it.  I posted another question for nebworth to award him an equal number of points.
