My T61 has a RJ-11 modem plug. But pci.exe doesn't show one
existing. OK, so maybe it is a so-called winmodem and
doesn't register in pci. Then it should show in Windows.
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.
