us robotics pci modem problems
O.K. here is where I'm at, PCI U.S. robotics modem installed and windows recognized the driver for it but I cannot connect to anything. The guy at 3com support told me it must be a conflict with irq 11, which also has ethernet card, usb to pci, and irq holder for pci steering, I would like to know how to change irq settings for this thing, I tried through device manager and it won't let me. anyone have any idea's I have spent to much time on the phone with support and they finally told me to call the computer manufacturer to find out how to change irq's ARGHHH
try moving the card to diffrent pci slot that may help
Have done that 2x removed the ethernet card and tried to start from there but it keeps going to irq 11 which has 2(now) other devices on it
This is interesting because I have the same setup as you (U.S. Robotics PCI modem and Ethernet card (3Com)), yet I don't have your problem. My Ethernet card is in PCI slot 1, and my modem in PCI slot 2.
My Ethernet card uses IRQ 5 (no sharing), and my modem shares IRQ 10 with my video card (ATI Rage 128 Xpert).
If you really need to switch your IRQs (which can mess up your system more if you make a mistake), the way I know how to do it is to boot into Safe mode (hold down the Ctrl key before the Windows splash screen is up) . . you can then specify the mode you want to boot into. Go into Device Manager and you should be able to manually assign IRQs. Note: Before doing this, write down the current IRQ config so you know what to change. Last time I switched IRQs this way, they were all defaulted to 3, and it took awhile to remember what devices needed to share IRQs.
I'm sure there's a better way to switch IRQs, I'm just not sure what it is.
Only other thing I could suggest is to remove the devices (ethernet card and modem) from device manager. Then remove the cards completely from the computer. Reboot. Then shut down, and install the modem. Do the necessary installation. Reboot. See if the modem works. Then try installing the Ethernet card.
Just got a brand new advent pc in the UK, comes with US Robotics 58K WinInt modem, straight out of the box the thing will dial up and then peeps a few times as though it is going to connect, but during this it spuawks and then goes quiet and then drops the connection saying no answer.
I have looked at trying to change the country code to be 44 but it will not remember this and keeps defaulting back to 27. I'm going to chew the computer shop out tomorrow, because there is a software support line provided but it is £1 per minute. After spending £1800 on a pc there is no way I am going toline their pockets further.
Any suggestions gratefully accepted.
