[Question also in Wndows 98 Topic 08/15/2001]
Client's machine. Toshiba laptop Satellite 201CT (about 4 - 5 years old). Clone PCMCIA 56k modem. Has been working fine until recently.
When trying DUN:
Error 630: The computer is not receiving a response from the modem. Check that the modem is plugged in, and if necessary, turn the modem off, and then turn it back on.
Phone dialler also doesn't work, BUT I CAN Hyperterm to dial the modem using the AT commands. Proves modem itself does work.
Modem diagnostics are fine. I have checked all the obvious things recommended on the MS KnowledgeBase. Pls don't point me there!
I have replaced the unimodem.drv file, checked no other comms programs installed or running. Since the
modem can actually dial out with Hyperterm, I assume it's not hardware.
Might be Tosh drivers?
