Hi, I'm still on about my powerbook (kanga/3500), managed to get it up and running with a nice clean os (9.1). The only thing spoiling it is that the system profiler won't detect the internal modem. The modem and ethernet are combined on one internal card (the same port at the back is used for both) and the ethernet is working perfectly. Using the system profiler it says "no apple modem detected". I've heard about a way to reset the modem using Appleworks 5 although haven't been able to try this yet. Does anybody know wether resetting can make a previously undetectable modem appear? Is there a way to physically check the connections/leads of my modem by opening up the powerbook? Or if the ethernet works does that mean all connections on that card are ok? I've also bought a Dayna Communicard pcmcia 33.6k modem card (from the same time period as the pb) and tried using it. That is detected by the powerbook/operating system as being inserted in the card slot (icon comes onto desktop) but its not showing up on the system profiler, so it won't dial up. So that's another problem there. If I thought it would work I think I would just buy a cheap 56k modem card, which would be faste than the internal one anyway. The main reason I want to get this pb on the net is to use the software update function. I'm afraid there may be some crucial Apple updates I'm msising out on for 9.1! thanks.
