I've got an older 3com modem that I installed in a Win98 box.  No other software is loaded on the box.  The modem picks up incoming calls.  Is there any way to disable??

Go to control panel and see if your modem appears there.
If not...go to control panel..system..driver manager and
select it and open its properties.

In either of the above places, either disable autoanswer or change the number of rings before answering.
I don't hv a 3com modem with me now so i can't tell you the exact terms used or the exact location.
Explore in one of the 2 places mentioned in the first paragraph.

I think that you need to send it the ATA
option ( Autoanswer 0 - don't pick up.).

You need to set the S0, S1 registers to a high number.

This can be done in the advanced Init string for the modem.

I hope this helps !

Is this an external or internal modem???

If is is an external, there is an autoanswer switch on the back of the modem (series of 8 dip swithces)
Some of the older internal modems also had the dip switches or jumpers to set this.

May also check your BIOS settings on how you've configured the BIOS for modem calls.

This is an extra AT setting in your modem called S0.
You can set this via Start | Settings | Control Panel | Modems
Get the properties of the 3Com modem.

Click the Connection tab.
Click Advanced.
In Extra initialization commands (Extra settings) enter:
S0=0

Now your modem don't answer a call anymore.

Hope this helps.

Sorry it took a while to respond - had to travel for work.  Sent the regsters and that fixed it!  Hendrik999 had the same solution but yours was first.
Thanks
