Seting up internet connection

Recently, I've just install Win2K inside my computer but the problem is how to setup up the internet connection. I've tried a various way to setup the internet connection (using the way in Win98) but failed. I'm using an internal modem that support Win2K. Do I have to install an IIS or create a virtual port (eg. com 4) on it. How do I setup an internet connection?

If your computer is recognising your modem, then you simply need to go to 'Start' 'Settings' 'Network and Dial-up Connections'....double click on 'Make New Connection' and then follow the internet connection wizard.  If windows doesn't recognise your modem, then try the add/remove hardware wizard from Control Panel to add it.  You don't need to install IIS, and a virtual port will be added (e.g. COM 4)  when the modem is installed.

If win2k recgonizes the modem properly then you shouldn't have any problem.  Just goto network dial-up connection -> Make new connection -> and select dial-up to the internet.  Now once you're at "Welcome to internet connection wizard", select the last option "I want to set up internet connection manually, or i want to connect through a local area network (LAN). From there you should know what to do.

hope this helps

The problem is my newly bought internal modem (Motorola SM56)says it support W2K but when I try the add/remove hardware wizard, it couldn't detect my modem. Should I update the modem driver? Any recommended site?

Then the presumption here is that there wasn't any disks with dirvers supplied with modem when you unpackaged it, is this correct? Also have you installed the Service Pack 1 and/or Service Pack 2 for Windows 2000?
