I wonder if anyone can help. I am having a shocking time trying to install a modem into my PC (Compaq Deskpro, Pentium III, 256MB memory, Windows 98). The modem is a Speedstream 3060 internal one, made by Efficient Networks.
I have the latest drivers, both on an installation CD and downloaded, as well as older drivers I have tried. I have moved it into each slot in the PC, uninstalling it and reinstalling it each time, but even though the Speedstream logo appears in my taskbar and it says 'Connected' (with the correct VCI and VPI settings for my ISP, freeserve) it simply won't connect.
I have tried 'Make New Connection' in the Dial-up bit, and Add in the Connection tab in Control Panel-Internet Options, but both times it tries to detect a new modem and refuses to do so. Using the installation disk then, when it asks for the driver for it, it tells me it finds no information about my hardware which seems insane seeing as it's the blasted installation disk for it I'm using.
It all looks like it should in device manager, as far as I can tell, and I've basically tried every single thing I can think of.
Does anyone have experience of the Speedstream 3060 and had problems with it in the past? If anyone could point me in the right direction it would be of immense help.
Thanks in advance,
