hi, yesterday the modem on my other computer could not be detected and I can't get on the inernet using it. I have a dial up modem 56k and I could get on the net fine for a long time, but something happened to my network connection and it isn't there anymore. I tried setting up a new connection but I can't because my computer does not detect the modem anymore. Does anyone have an idea why it doesn't?

Right click the My Computer icon and choose Properties. Go to the Hardware tab and click Device Manager. Is the modem listed here? Do you have any devices showing up as "Unknown"? If the modem is there make sure it's enabled and then double click it and go to the Diagnostics tab and click Query Modem. If you see values populating under "Command" and "Response" columns then the modem is probably working and you just need to tell the dial up connection to connect using that device.

If the modem is not in the Device Manager then I would want to know what kind of computer you have.

The modem is detected in the device manager and it is also enabled. I tried clicking on query modem as you told me to and values did come up under command and response. After I did that I went and tried to set up a connection again but the radio button is grayed out where it says connect using a dial up modem. When I was in the device manager I looked farther down and saw that the BIOS driver is corrupted. I'm assuming that this is the problem. So now what should I do? Reinstall it I assume but is there anything I need to know in particular before I do that?
thanx
