Windows 98 modem install

Windows says their are no conflicts with my U.S. Robotics 56K modem, but when I try to logon it says "Modem not responding." Is it possible that their is a conflict and 98 isn't recognizing it?

yes, try removing the driver for the modem

control panel -> system ->device manger

mark your modem, and press "remove".

restart windows. when windows prompts you for the driver,  point to the location of your driver files.

if its an external modem check that you have defined the correct COM port
