As your modem is a PCI one (ie internal) then its normal for it to be using a virtual COM port (ie 3, 4 or 5).

Does your modem appear anywhere in device manager?

Have you run the modem diagnostic? - in XP go to control panel -> phones & modems. Click on your modem in the list to select it & click on the diagnostic button. This will query the modem. If it responds after a few seconds with a list of AT commands, then the modem is working. (or strictly speaking, its communicating with the rest of the system).

If there are no modems listed in Phones & Modems or if an error message is returned, let me know.

That all appears to be working. The DSR (data set ready) signal is apparently low but this isn't preventing it from connecting & shouldn't be a problem.

Are you still having problems with the modem?

DUN can be installed from add/remove programs->windows components in control panel. It will probably ask you for the XP CD though.

OK, so you can connect to the net but you get frequently disconnected. Here are some possible reasons for this you can check out :

1. Check the timeout parameter - ie 'disconnect if idle' setting, and disable it.

2.Do you have call waiting on the phone line? This can cause a connection to terminate.

3. Line noise. If the phone line/sockets are old or worn, this can cause a modem to disconnect if it's bad enough.

4. Also, open control panel->network. Highlight Dialup adapter & select properties. On the Advanced tab, select 'Record a log file' & change it's setting to YES.
This will keep a text file log called ppplog.txt.
Connect to the net & use as normal and wait to be disconnected. Repeat a second time if you wish, in case there is more than one cause.
While disconnected from the net, locate & open the ppplog file & have a read through.

NB When the problem you are having has finally been solved, remember to disable the log recording as this file will get quite large after a while.

5. Disable XP's firewall, it's as much use as a chocolate fireguard anyway.
Also, let me know what other programs you have running in the background.
