Unhappy Modem

Hi, I have just installed a new modem into my Tosh laptop. It is working fine, except when I shut it down and re-boot the modem cannot be detected?? If I then eject the modem then push it back in .....it works!

Any ideas please??

Cheers

Ps I am running windows 2000

Is it a PCMCIA modem?

If so...then that is normal with Windows 2000. Windows 2000 is OK at hot swapping the PCMCIA. Yes, that is what you need to do with Windows 2000.

Live with it.

They've already answered your question; take it out and put it back in everytime to want to use it.
