  • Hi,


    Thanks for the post!


    Please make sure your network interface drivers are up to date and compatible with Windows 7.


    Then you can try the following:

    ·         Close all other programs and try again to establish the connection. Another program might be using the modem or the communication port to which the modem is attached.

    ·         Make sure that a modem has been installed on your computer.

    If the issue persists, please try Clean Boot to find the cause.
