I have a 56k modem that lists on my computer as "conexant 56K" modem, and worked fine for several years. It is manufactured by MAC systems Co LTD. and the manufacturer info on the card says "MA560CI rev1.3" my operating system is WinXP.
I recently got broadband internet service, but I still need the 56K modem to send and receive the occasional fax. I have sent faxes since starting the broadband internet, but suddenly today my computer does not detect the presence of my modem! I have uninstalled, reinstalled, tried updating drivers, opened up the darn computer and REMOVED the modem from the plug and play slot, restarted the computer, re-inserted the modem (still not detected as being present!!!) and even repeated this whole process in the other plug and play slots in the computer.
Is my modem beyond all hope? Or is there some really stupid obvious thing I have overlooked? Please help, my husband and kids will thank you because I've been a grouchy bear
all day trying to get the darn thing to work.
