Modem open port problem

  1. Jun 9, 2003 #1
    I got 2 OS system, winME and winXP, same modem installed to the PC.
    WinME can detect and dial up to internet with the modem, but winXP prompts me open port, i use modem diagnosis to query the modem, the modem can respond, but still open port after that.
    How to fix it ?:frown:

    My guess would be a compatibility issue with XP and your modem.

    By now, surely there is XP drivers for that device.

    I'd try looking your modems manufacturers website.

    In malaysia, initial installation of broadband (350kB/sec) will cost me 100 USD, after that, i got to pay USD25/month.
    My company's internet speed is averaged at 30kB/s, fast enough for me to download.
    So, save the money!

    Here broadband connection is very common and very cheap. I only need to pay about $12.5 USD per month for an unlimited access of internet using braodband! Good for downloading songs and movies.
