As has been said, your modem is not hanging up properly.  The most
common cause for this is an incorrect driver.  Make sure you are using
the proper and most updated driver for your modem.  Try searching on the
Internet for your model of modem and download the most current driver.
If this does not resolve the problem then the odds start favoring a
hardware problem.

Subject: [24hoursupport] Modem

Hello all!

I am running win 98 on a pentium 166 w/64 mb ram. I bought an old, (but
new in box) Compaq/Microcom 510 plug & play serial/parallel external

I installed the modem on com2 (my only external port) as a serial modem.
I cannot use it as a parallel modem for other reasons.

The modem worked fine after install and got on the net quickly, but
after disconnect and trying to re-connect, IE5 says "cannot find modem".
I click modems in control panel and go to diagnostics and get "port
already open" 

I remove and re-install the modem and once more it gets on the net. On
disconnect the pattern repeats.

I cannot turn off the modem, (no switch) except by unplugging its power
supply, but this doesn't help

Any advice is appreciated, even a DOS batchfile to close com 2. Thanks,
