I have inherited a American Presario laptop computer. Both the internal modem and connected external modem work. However connecting to a BT line (whilst attempting to sign up to both Tiscali and BEEB.net)the computer reports that it can not connect to either server. Is this a question of different protocols and therefore is an unsolvable problem ? I would appreciate any comments. Many thanks, Colin

There should be no problem. If anything it is a software conflict somehow... can you do a reinstall?

the modem should work in any country

Have you looked in modem properties you need to tell it what country your in.

More details if we know what operating system / modem your'e using.
