I have installed a brand new modem onto a Vista PC.  The modem was made for Vista and the drivers installed correctlly.  I  queried the modem and it works fine.  When I use network connections or Earthlink to set up a Dial Up network, the programs say the modem does not appear.  Although it is displayed in Device Manager.

Any Ideas?
