I have installed XP Pro and now can't get my modem to respond. Tryed configuring it as a standard 56k modem but no joy.

I've now installed the driver file, but still no joy. Installation notes state modem should by in COM5 or higher, but I appaear to only have the option of 2 COM Ports.

I get Error 633 modem already in use or not configured properly if I attempt to dial out.

This is for a NZ ISP but the suggested fixes should help.
