Ok, Im working on a computer for a guy. Its a friggin dinosaur packard bell 165mhz synera running (of all things : ) Me. It is a pci modem, i set the bios to a pnp os, changed irqs 3 and 4 to pci/isa pnp, made sure the modem irq in the bios was set to 3, as is the modem in windows. It detects the modem, i install the drivers, it dials out, you hear the screechy sounds, and it sits there for a minute and a half before it disconnects. Im at a loss. Ive reinstalled it, Ive double checked stuff. Anyone else got any ideas?
