Ifno modem is currently installed on your computer, the Install New ModemWizard starts automatically to lead you through the steps forinstalling a modem. Follow the online instructions.
If the wizard does not auto start then you will need to click on add and that should fire it up.
If windows does not automatically register the modem that is there then you may need to manually select it.
Most hardward companies provide drivers to download via the web foreven the oldest of hardware, so if you know the modem type you candownload the needed drivers and re-install that way as well.
So Windows ME is the worst ever WindowsOS for drivers even though Windows 3.1 and earlier came with little to none? At least in ME you had generic drivers to use.
The only real issues I have been notified of concerning Windows Me was that it was less stable and froze every 15 minutes, it was just a marketing failure. The only real breakthrough after Windows 3.1 was Windows NT, you had stability and reliability you couldn't find on home users computers.
Windows95/98/Me were built from MS-DOS, NT was built on its own technology and only emulates DOS. The cons outweigh the pros when switching from DOS based OS's to Nt Technology.
I think you guys are bashing Windows ME because there were few differences between it and good ole 98SE.
