I put a brand new modem in in this PII350 computer. Mobo is PC100 440BXToo. Modem works fine on other Intel SE440BX2 machine. I tried my old modem which works fine in the 440BX also. Both modems give me NO
DIALTONE. I checked the line and jack from the wall with a phone. Works fine. I plugged the phone into the phone jack on the modem....I get a dial tone. I checked More info in Diagnostics...The info pulls up. There is no Fax software. This is a brand new clean Win 98 Sec Ed. install and nothing else is installed. The only thing I can think of is in the Telephony settings it has NSIDSWAN which I cannot delete for some reason. It has a greyed out check that says use as default. Also has the normal Unimodem. The Ami Bios has settings for Power management to enable monitoring of the modem to wake on Ring. I tried both settings. Modem Installed? Yes and no. And tried to set port to monitor. The modem is installed on Com 3 on IRQ 12. The bios will not let me monitor IRQ 12. I even had it on other IRQ's and set to monitor. Same thing....no dial tone. Also I have the ps/2 mouse connected to a serial port....(the ps/2 port is broken...need to replace.) It was set to com 1. So I switched it to com2 thinking that perhaps the com 1 and 3 were conflicting somehow. I did have this working on the first dialup session on this pc right after the install. I then installed Netbeui and finished installing my Network settings for my Peer to peer network and then is when it quit working.
Any suggestions? Or do I need to reformat and start over?
