You probably need to create a DUN in Windows, set the Username and Password required for your internet connection, and Connect. You can create a shortcut to the DUN on your Desktop if you require.

DUN is Dial Up Networking - basically the connection configuration. The drivers you have installed make the modem be able to be controlled by the computer, but you need to configure it to connect to your connection.

In XP do the following:
Arrow Click on Start - Settings - Network Connections
Arrow Click on Create a new connection
Arrow Click Next
Arrow Select Connect to the Internet and click Next
Arrow Select Setup my connection manually and click Next
Arrow Select Connect using a broadband connection that requires a username and password and click Next
Arrow Follow the wizard entering the details required for your internet account.
Arrow On the last page there should be an option to Add a shortcut to this connection to my desktop - make sure this is checked.

ADSL connections usually don't require a phone number, however if it does, instead of selecting Connect using a broadband connection that requires a username and password, select Connect using a dial-up modem

I don't think there is a fault with anything, you just need to know how to configure it. Have you spoken to your ISP?

Mr. Green

This is good advice. Have you spoken to your ISP, or whoever supplied the modem? You are asking us to troubleshoot a modem we've never used, these people should have a much better idea about it.

Does Device Manager show any problem devices? If so what? Also, what entries do you have in the Network Adapters section of Device Manager? Do you get an icon in the taskbar by the clock for the modem?

Yes i get a icon for the ADSL connection(like the ethrnet icon "2 computers") and its in READY state.the problem is i dont get a icon to connect through...my ISP people says that might be happening bcz of a Virus and slips away...but iam sure its not...i installed WinXP and i have a updated virus guard running.by the way,i dont have any faulty devices in Device manager(which shows in yellow)...is this happening bcz of a IRQ clash ?
