Modem can't be found?

Last Modified: 2013-12-27
I have set up a new computer using an AOpen MB with a socket 7 and AMD K62-333 processor.  I am not able to install the modem. I have a Best Data 56F properly jumpered for the corresponding COM and IRQ.  In Device Manage, everything reads OK.  When I go to Modems and Diagnostics, I get an error message that the modem can't be found.  I have changed modems to no avail. I have tried to install a SupraMax on the PCI bus.  Win 98 and the computer does not read a PnP Modem to install, but comes up with "PCI Serial Controller" as new hardware.  Any ideas???
