It is an USB modem trendnet tfm-561u .... And have reinstall driver several times ....... I think it is a compatibility problem.... I have ordered a new modem.... Let you know when I have tried it out... Maybe wensday...
Olaf De CeusterCommented:
USB modems are notorious for not working on win server 2008.Did you try the generic windows modem driver?
In order to remove a USB driver properly:
In an admin command prompt:
Run following commands:
set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1
set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1
In menu: Show hidden devices.
Go to USB and remove all greyed out items.
