    Help w/modem

    My modem won't stay connected unless I set the port speed to 9600. Is this the modem or the port that is bad?

    It could be either connie or it may be the drivers that are bad for the modem. If you know the name and model number, we can located the drivers first and have you reinstall them. That would be my first course of action since it is free.

    The second choice is to replace the modem. This should cost around $30-35 if a reputable computer installs it. Otherwise, expect to pay $10 less if you do it yourself.

    I'd try these two out first before attempting to do anything else. Let me know if you need more help, including finding drivers.

    I've dowloaded & reinstalled new drivers for it before, didn't work. Have even reinstalled windows & still no luck. I think it's the modem but wanted to make sure before I buy a new one this weekend. I'll change it out myself though. Thanks.
