Continued from page 1

After Windows starts you can openrepparttar "Add New Hardware Wizard". The Wizard will attempt to detect any new hardware. Then it will give yourepparttar 107825 option to "selectrepparttar 107826 hardware from a list." Chooserepparttar 107827 option to select from a list, then clickrepparttar 107828 Next button. Inrepparttar 107829 list select "modem" and click onrepparttar 107830 Next button. Then it will give yourepparttar 107831 option to let windows "try to detect your modem" or "selectrepparttar 107832 modem from a list."

PnP will not be able to detect your modem if it's a model developed after your Windows installation disc was mastered. Nor will it appear onrepparttar 107833 list. Just selectrepparttar 107834 closest match fromrepparttar 107835 list, then updaterepparttar 107836 driver afterwards.

If Plug and Play installs old drivers, openrepparttar 107837 Control Panel "System" utility. Click onrepparttar 107838 Device Manager tab and inrepparttar 107839 device type list, openrepparttar 107840 branch for "Modem". Selectrepparttar 107841 name ofrepparttar 107842 modem and click onrepparttar 107843 "properties" button. The modems "Properties" dialog box will open. Selectrepparttar 107844 "Driver" tab and click onrepparttar 107845 "Update Driver..." button. The "Update Driver Wizard" appears.

The modem "driver" will most likely not be a single file. It might be a group of files with extensions like .vxd, .exe, .ini, .dll, etc. The list of files is contained in a text file withrepparttar 107852 extension .inf. So when you installrepparttar 107853 "driver" you are actually readingrepparttar 107854 files and other configuration fromrepparttar 107855 .inf file.

Step 4. Don't forget to reconfigure your dial-up connection withrepparttar 107856 new modem. If you are a system administrator, don't forget to see that everyone else's dial-up connection gets updated as well.
