Why doesn't my modem work?

Question

OK, this concerns the "modem works under XP but not 2000" question posted earlier this month. I tried what Julie suggested about downloading the modem drivers from the site, but when i try to load it up and get it running it says the "device cannot start" and won't give me a reason why. I can't think of anything else to get this thing working. HELP.

Answer

Intel subsequently issued updated drivers that resolve this issue They can be downloaded here However, a new problem with the Ambient Ham was introduced in Windows XP SP1, detailed below.

Reboot instead of shutdown issue conjoined with BSOD error message STOP 0x000000D1: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL in file SERIAL.SYS Previously, this was only resolved by disabling the Billion ISDN card SOLUTION: Billion has now released a new driver 3.24 that solves this problem, available here.
