I recently got this PCI V.92 Modem to replace a modem I was borrowing off my friend. When I installed it there were no problems at all and the device was said to be working properly.

However everytime I tried to dial out with it Windows 2000 would crash. Everytime I queried the modem windows 2000 would crash.

It is apparently an Ambient HaM Fax Data Voice modem. I have got it to work several times however when I have got it to work next time I boot up it will not work. It would crash when I disconnected from the internet and when I went on online games my ping was terrible (around 600) when it should have been 150 (as it was in cmd when I pinged the server).

I think it might have something to do with my PCI graphics card a TNT 2 maybe an IRQ conflict or something as both use the same IRQ number.

So does anyone know how to fix this problem? If so please reply urgently even if it's to say there is no solution. It is driving me crazy.

Thanks alot guys.

Any idea who manufactured the modem? Ambient/Intel doesn't list any new drivers for V.92 right now. You could try the V.90 drivers from for Windows2000.
As far as an IRQ conflict in Win2K goes it's unlikely as 2K is designed to use ACPI and IRQ sharing is normal.
