Where to put Inits?
Yes, the trusty winmodem again.
Seem we have all had at least one call concerning win98 and winmodems. Here's a nifty little workaround when win98 refuses to load a driver or loads the wrong one and you can't open the com port.
1) Remove all modems from device manager
2) On the win98 CD run the following program; D:\drivers\modem\3com-usr\winmodem\wmregdel.exe
4) If windows detects the modem and asks for a driver point it to;
5) If windows does not detect the modem, In control panel,open modems let it detect,change modem (or manual add) then point it to the above directory.
*If the modem still does not operate, it has failed! This driver is intended for 33.6 modems but it will work with 56k versions.
