| Shawn, not
sure if this will help you folks, but here is how I installed the modem
to my Windows 2000 machine. Image 1
shows my device manager, and the installed modem. As you can see it is
good for go. I installed it as USB so as not to screw up my network. We
have found running dual network cards at Riggs really sucks.
shows the modem with the PC light good for go.
3 is exploring the CD to the Y2K directory, which is where you will
point the computer to when it asks for the drivers.
4 is the contents of the Y2K folder. You should not have to drill in
I can only venture a guess at the problems you may
have experienced on other machines. I did notice the Starband software
really gets shitty on the install if the dish is not hooked up. And it
will toast the dialup stuff, IE and cause a blue screen of death.
My thoughts on this is that the Starband software
is trying to communicate to early in the install. Hopefully with the
Dish tuned in, and using my technique on getting the modem installed
this break will not happen. After Dish and Modem are installed, then run
the automated setup from the CD.
I will be more than willing to work with the Tech
on perfecting a good clean install technique. Plus, your Tech can show
me a thing or two. I also have two friends at work who are interested,
so I am the Lab Rat :) I work in the Computer Department at J. A. Riggs
Tractor, we have fourteen servers NT and Win2000 and 500+ PC's. So I can
say that I have been around the block once or twice with these
