I reformatted a Dell Dimension 4300 (originall XP) with a copy of Windows 98 (the only OS handy) and now cannot get modem to work. Correct modem appears in device manager, but not in controlpanel_modem. COM 1 is listed in device manager, and has no modem attached in controlpanel_modem. COM 2 is not listed in device manager, but has multiple copies in Controlpanel_modem with what I think is the correct modem associated.
The correct driver has been installed with this conexantHCF V90 PCI modem.
I saw related questions answered, but i need a little more explanation.
