I am trying to install a 56K modem in an older computer that has Windows 98 for an OS. The computer is an ULTRA. The part nbr on the modem is 6000758 which apparently is a Gateway nbr. On Gateway's website I found this modem (along with a picture and it does look like my modem) 'U.S. Robotics, ISA 56K Voice WinModem (Fargo).'
It seemed to install okay. I downloaded a driver from DriverGuide and used it. When I go into the device manager it says that this device is working properly.
When I try to connect to the internet I don't hear a dial tone and I get the message 'Error 630 The computer is not receiving a response from the modem.'
The phone line is okay, I'm replacing a modem that is able to connect. I'm using the jack that is labeled 'TELCO.'
I was given this modem and I don't know if it good or not, I think it came from a computer that was working, the computer just got replaced because it was old and a friend of mine is parting it out.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
