I'm sorry! A friend of mine had this same exact problem a few months ago. I posted about it here and people were very helpful but the only thing that ended up fixing it was a guy she knew finally came over and made sure everything was right in the setup. She had installed it right, but the driver didn't take. Did you install the driver CD?

Wait until LivLuv gets here, I know she can help! *volunteers*

i was working on my computer last night, and i just basically installed the "standard modem" from within my computer and it recognizes it, but wont get online. it just needs the driver. i dont know which driver it needs. thats the problem.

Icelle - you're right, it's not going to work without its driver. Find out what model it is (you might have to actually pull it out and check the sticker) and type that in Google with the word "driver" and see what comes up. Otherwise, if you know the brand or manufacturer, you could go to their website and look for a driver. Usually tech websites have a section called "Support and Drivers" or a "Downloads" section with drivers.

Oh, and if you can get online somewhere else to get a driver, you could find out what model it is, call the company, and request for them to send you a driver disc.

And if you're REALLY stuck, I can send you my modem since I doubt I'll ever use it.
