im having SOO much trouble getting this motorola modem to get to work properly..
its a Motorola win5602 modem line interface card (62099-51)
i don't know if many people have had this same problem, but its HELL installing this thing.. im running win 98
so if anyone has had this problem, or knows how to get it to work.. i downloaded a couple drivers, which im at 80% confident are the right ones.. (www.driverguide.com --> win5602... also the ISA-BUILD671)
thx

What's the exact trouble your having with the modem?

Have you checked in Device Manager for any IRQ conflicts?

It's quite common for ISA modems to have jumpers on the actual card that be set to select the relevant IRQ. May want to try this if you have a conflict.

well, as odd as it might seem, there are no jumpers on the modem
but maybe i shouldve specified this earlier on, it doesn't use the complete isa slot.. its like half of it.. it uses only the first section of the slot (since its split into 2)

Have you queried the modem in it's properties to see if you get a reply?.

Are you getting a no dial tone message etc.. when trying to connect to the Internet? Is this the actual problem?
