Hi,
I just bought a brand new modem. I installed it and it works,but here's the deal: When my computer is off,and the phone rings,my computer automatically comes on by itself. If my computer is on and someone is trying to call me(only have 1 phone line) sometimes it freezes my computer totally up. Please help! The modem I bought is a Broadxent DSI V.92 PCI Fax modem. I do not have a fax machine!!!!
