OK, here is what's happening. I click in my I.E. icon to connect to the Internet and I get a message saying that my computer can't detect my modem. So I go to Control Panel click the System icon. Then I click on the Device Manager tab, go to to Modem and highlight my U.S. Robotics 56K Win INT modem and click properties. From there I see that it says "This device is working properly" and close every window out. Now I go back to my I.E. icon and I can connect to the Internet???? I didn't do anything at all besides looking at the properties of my modem, so what do I do to avoid that every time I connect to the Internet? Any Suggestions????
