Make sure that it is enabled in the BIOS.  I can see it in Windows XP as a Thinkpad modem, but it is not detected in eCS 2.0.  Make sure \os2\boot\pcidev.tbl exists.

When I boot to XP there is no modem device.  And if I open
the control panel app for phone/modem it shows the 2 usb
external devices&  a 'thinkpad modem' device - all of them as
'not available' or some similiar wording meaning they don't

Since I have an RJ-11 jack can I assume there is a modem?
Would Lenovo sell a TP w/o a modem but still include the
RJ-11 jack?  I suppose that perhaps there *might* be a place
in the bios to diable the modem but I could not find
anything.  I did have the serial port disabled but
re-enabling it did not make the modem show up.

I don't want to spend time troubleshooting something that
doesn't exist but if the RJ-11 means I have a modem then I
want to get it working so I can use my TP on dialup for an
upcoming journey to a no-wireless area.

Any ideas?

Thanks, jon
