there is a modem plugged to PCI slot and no idea what to do with it.
Any suggestions, advices, please.
Use it to dialup into the internet like real people :)
Use it to dial into your other box's modem when you change houses?
String some telephone wire between your house and your neighbour's with
high-speed internet when your house is too far from the telco for 56K.
Moan to the money person in the house that it's lights don't work, then
go out and buy a USR Courier external serial.
Save it for your kids. Say: this is how we used to call into Bulletin
Board Services to exchange mail.
Seriously, what would you like to use it for? Send faxes, dial your
kids's cell phone at midnight?
Because of that the modem should work!
