I currently have an internal Broadxent V.92 PCI DI3631-1 [Modem]. My OS is XP VLK.
But I just got a used U.S. ROBOTICS COURIER EXTERNAL 56K V.EVERYTHING MODEM. In good condition it came with a power cord & RS232 data cable. But no users manual or install disks.
Its a much better modem plus ability the to use with Linux.
I downloaded the "Getting Started" manual. It's not clear.
Is it a must to physically uninstall my current internal modem? Or can I leave it connected?
And must I uninstall my current software Network Connections? And how? I've always just deleted them. Or would my new external modem just assume the old Network Connections?
Or can I just disable my internal modem in Device Manager?
Cause I'm thinking I have to take note of my login UN & PW & access numbers of my ISP. Physically uninstall my current internal modem & delete the old Network Connections. Then connect my new external modem. Reboot & then I figure XP will popup with the found new hardware wizard. I'll follow the prompts & plugin my ISP info. That's it.
But.... if theres any problems with the new setup it'd be easier if I didn't physically uninstall my current internal modem & delete the old Network Connections. So I had that to fall back on.
Help would be appreciated. Thanks.
