Computer not detecting modem
Posted on 2006-06-18
I got rogers internet connection (DSL, Motorola surfboard modem) today. I have an old desktop (P-III, RAM-512 MB) and a laptop.
Internet works fine on my laptop but does not work on my desktop. Last time, I used ethernet internet connection on the desktop about two months back. It was working fine. But then, I switched to dial up connection and I replaced the ethernet card (realtek RTL8139 high speed ethernet card) with dial up modem. Now I put the ethernet card back to the same slot again. But it keeps showing message "DH** server not reachable" (It does not detect the modem).
