Dial-up networking Unavailable - device missing

All dial-up networking connections in XP home show the following error.  Unavailable - device missing.  I've tried 3 different modems, I've also tried deleting all connections and recreating them.  All modems passed the query test under diagnostics in the control panel also.  Any ideas?  Is there an XP service that can cause this?

Just a couple of other thoughts, Have you updated to SP2 yet? Has the modem ever worked? There are a lot of tiny little apps on the internet now adays, it is possible for someone to create one that would prevent the modem from dialing. Maybe kill off all unneccessary services and then create a dial up connection. But I also think that it is dial up networking related so The above link by Kenneniah, sounds pretty close to your issue hopefully that will be your anwser.

thanks

Performed all of the steps in the MS paper,  Performed full XP repair install.  Performed all XP update including SP2.  Something along the way fixed the dial-up connections.  Thanks for the help.
