We just had a pretty nasty electrical storm that fried my wife's Zoom internal faxmodem. I'll  probably pick up a US Robotics 56 k internal and install it this weekeend. My qustion is pretty simple. How do I retain my existing settings when installing the new modem? The OS is win95 osr2.

Should I delete the Zoom modem in Device manager first or after the neew install?

Thanks,
Nick Baldo

I would delete the Zoom from the Device Manager first before installing your new modem, unless you are going to get the exact same one.

As for your setting, if you are talking about your Dial up settings, you will only need to change which modem it will use to dial out. My computer/dial-up-networking/ and click properties on your connection.


Hope this helps,
Craig

Thanks Craig,
You got me on the correct track. I had to *right-click* to access properties on my connection in order to choose the new modem. I also had to remove COM2 from Device manager in addition to the old modem in order to get the new modem installed onto COM2 (where my old modem was) instead of COM3.
Thanks:)
