Sound Card to Modem Card Connector Cable

Q: Sound Card to Modem Card Connector Cable

I used to have an internal cable conecting the sound card to the modem card inside of the CPU. When I put in the new 3Com/USR 56k modem FX/VC/DT/SP, there was no connector to which to conect the sound card cable.

I read somewhere once, that one could connect the output of the modem card to the input of the Sound Card using a short cable on the outside back of the CPU to achieve the same thing.

The other option is to dedicate a speaker system to the modem card. (If i do this route, do I use a monaural speaker or a stereo speaker system--in other words, i think the modem is a monaural sound source but i wanna check for sure?).

I think it would be cleaner to be able to take the OUT from the modem to the IN of the Sound Card on the back of the CPU. Does anyone know if this will work?

Hello everyone
I am a complete newcomer to Linux I only installed it yesterday and I have a problem I can't get the control /hardware wizard to find my USB cable modem. I know that it is the "norm"
to have either a network card or an ethernet card but I have neither just a cable modem which is an ethernet adapter. The wizard seems to only look for a card or a dial up modem and mine is neither. Does anyone know can Mandrake be made to use this arrangement? and does Mandrake have drivers for a usb cable modem? or is it time to go back to the dreaded windows and in the clutches of Billionaire Gates
Help please Thank You

I have roadrunner with a Toshiba cable modem on Win98se everything has been fine until about a week ago the PC(network card) light on my modem shuts off and starts going on and off randomly. When im on Winxp and this happens it keeps saying network cable unplugged and then it goes back on and like a minute later happens again. I tried switching the ethernet cable thinking it was the cable but it still happens its so random i have no idea whats the problem i even tried installing new drivers for the SMC ez network card i have still doesnt fix the problem, also on WINXp when all the lights are on i still cant seem to connect to any websites or access anything. Only thing i can do is keep rebooting till my PC light is stable and then its only a matter of time before it starts bugging out again. Any Help or suggestions are greatly appreciated!

A:Network Card/Cable Modem?????

I have cable also with W98 and SMC EZ card. Have you called your ISP help line? I have a different modem but have had a similar problem. Also, did you go into start/run and type winipcgf [enter]? When the dialog box opens, click "More Info">>. Near the middle in the white window, click the drop down arrow and you should be able to select your SMC adapter. *Do Not select PPP Adapter* Make a note of your IP and default gateway. Click "release all"; the IP's should zero out. Then click renew all. They should reset to their original settings. If they reset to different IP's, especially a "default" 169.xxx.xxx.xxx, or won't reset then try to power cycle the modem. I don't know about your model of modem- only mine. On mine I power down the computer, pyhsically remove the power cord and cable in from the modem. Wait about a minute, reconnect the modem, then reboot. Try this 3 or 4 times. If none of this works then definitely call your ISP, which I recommend you do any way. Good luck and let us know what happens.

Comcast came by today and set up a cable modem today on one of my machines. It works perfectly on this machine, but when I plug the ethernet cable that connects from the modem into my other machine (a laptop), I can't connect to the internet. The browser can't connect, and I get nothing when I type "ping google" (I typed the full web address of google, but for some reason these forums won't let me post the full address here) into Command Prompt. I noticed that there is a solid orangish-reddish light that turns on on the network card when I plug the ethernet cable into the network card of my laptop, but the light is green when I plug the ethernet cable into the working machine's network card. On the laptop, I tried to "repair" the connection from the "Network Connections" window in the Control Panel, but it gives me an error message that says "Unable to renew IP address." I checked the properties of the connection (TCP/IP etc) on the laptop and all of the settings look identical to the settings of the working machine.

The laptop (that can't connect) is running Windows XP SP1, and the machine that can connect is running Windows XP SP2.

Any idea what could be wrong?

A:Network Card & Cable modem problem

First off, ping the loopback of the laptop. Type PING If that works then you know the NIC is OK. If not you have a problem with the NIC in the laptop.

Second, open up TCP/IP properties and make sure that Obtain IP address automatically and Obtain DNS address automatically are set.

If that wont work try to uninstall the NIC in the laptop through device manager. Restart and let windows reinstall the NIC. mabye the driver is corrupt. Who knows. Even if Windows finds a driver, go to the website for the NIC maker or laptop manufacturer and get the newest driver and install that driver.

If none of that works then get a PC card NIC and try that. Ive had more than one NIC go el muncho on me in the past.

Good Luck.

Clueless one here.

I purchased a Dell Inspiron 4000 Laptop through an old workplace several years ago and want to connect it to the internet using a 3COM FE575C-3COM 10/100 PCMCIA card with a dongle. The laptop is still set up to connect through a VPN that no longer exits (old workplace went under). and I'm not sure if that's hindering things. That'd be great to erase all settings for that if someone wanted to walk me through it, but that's not the main reason I need help. I am the "admin" and have the "admin" password on the laptop.

First off, the laptop can see the hardware (ethernet card) when I insert it, but the connection is NOT showing up on my Netgear router that is connected to my Comcast Cable Modem (which is currently working on my MAC and how I'm typing here). When I go to set up internet connection on my laptop, I'm pretty clueless as to what to do (obviously not dial-up). I've created about 2 new VPN's, but nothing works. I don't have wireless, but I did have a wireless card that was able to get me onto the internet a few times (presumably mooching bandwidth which I don't want to do), so I know it can work or at least should work with a correct card set-up. I don't know if the hardware I bought is bad, the internet connection is just not set up correctly and/or why my router is not even seeing my second computer.

A:Modem/sound card driver help

No matter what the maker of your sound card or modem, alot of them use the same chipsets. Therefore windows XP is more or less useing the driver that supports the chipsets on your modem and soundcard. This will work fine.. As long as they work without problems I wouldn't be worried. But if you notice problems, head to the manufactuers website and download the drivers for your cards.

I am trying to use a program to record sound through my line input on the Creative Audio PCI 64, using a program called PolderBitS.
If I uninstal my sound card drivers and reboot the above program works ok, after re-installing the sound card drivers.
On going to the control panel "Sounds and Audio Devices" the data says it's using the correct device, but a reboot after this changes the device to "Modem #0 Record" with no sign on the sound card driver.
and the PolderbitS program reports that another program is using the sound card or is in use.
The sound card still works ok, I can play cd's ect. maybe it's using it through the modem if that's possible.
My O/S is WinXP Pro and modem SupraExpress 56i Sp International SUP2171
note it's an ISA Hardware Modem.

I recently needed to reinstall XP home to get a PC back to the "as new" condition. This gave me a few problems, and I eventually deleted the existing partitions and allowed XP to create a new one.
All went well - windows loaded up - everything fine.
But now windows claims my internal dial-up modem is not working (i know it is) and also claims I do not have a sound card installed - i know i have. I also have a second internal hard disc and this has also disappeared.
I assume that when I deleted the partition information i deleted some vital stuff that i should not have done - but this is a guess.
I have reinstalled all the drivers - but no luck.
Any clues on what I might have done and how i get windows to see these devices again? The "add new hardware" wizard is no good as the PC does not admit that there is any hardware.

A:Windows cannot see modem and sound card

Well if you don't have any yellow "?" in device manager try removing the cards and booting, then reinstalling them. See if Windows sees them then.

Knowing the mobo might help. Is the other drive SATA? Cheak BIOS settings too.

A:Sound Card/modem Problem


Hi There!

Go into Device Manager and check what IRQ's the devices are using. there may be a conflict.

Another thing to try...
Boot into Safe Mode-Device manager
Look for duplicate devices and remove ALL sound card & Modem references as well as anything that is not currently attached to the pc. Then reboot to Normal mode and load the proper drivers for what windows finds.

If the same problem persists, you will need to go into the BIOS, Make sure that your serial ports are DISABLED (if you don't use them), Also find and ENABLE "Reset Config Data", save changes,

boot into Safe Mode Again, and re-do the above steps with device manager.
then reboot and load the correct drivers.
Good Luck! ST

Hey everybody. I have two questions about two different topics.

First question, first topic: I recently installed a new sound card. The installation went fine but the old sound card, which is onboard, won't un-install. I've disabled it through Device Manager, but I was thinking of re-enabling it again. I'm wondering if there's a problem with having two sound cards running on your system.

Second question, second topic: I have two computers. I wanted to hook the two up by a single telephone wire, modem by modem. I want to do that to transfer information and play games with someone on the other computer. Now, is this possible?

If you could please answer these, I would appreciate it much!

Hi guys,

I am running XP Pro on a Dell Dimension XPS T500. My Turtle Beach sound card (Aureal Vortex 8830) was not being recognized by XP at all. I found my solution on this site - all i had to do was remove all my unneeded cards from the PCI slots and then I inserted only the sound card which was immediately recognized and worked fine. I then returned the other cards one by one. When I inserted the 56k modem card ( PCI56RVP rev B.1) it occupied the memory range that the sound card had previously occupied and now the sound card was not even detected by XP!

So I can simply throw out my modem card and the sound card will work fine.

But is there anything else I can do so the two cards can both be installed? I looked for info on possible jumper settings on the cards that might change their memory ranges but could not find any info on this.

Anybody have any ideas ?

I haven't had comp sound for over a year. It left during a chat room chat and been on vacation every since. I discovered that the modem and sound card both shared interrupt 5. I removed both from comp fully then reinstalled the sound card. It worked. Then I reinstalled the modem, it wouldn't work. I reversed the procedure, the modem worked, the sound card didn't. The modem is loading up in Device Manager under Modem and Sound, Video and Game Controllers. The Ess 1868 also loads under S,V and GC.

Finally, after messing around with it recently, I found that if I went into Resources under ESS sound card, change settings from auto to manually, move ESS from interrupt 5 to 9, reboot, I have both sound and modem. However, when I shutdown and come back up, the sound card reverts to Interrupt 5 and Auto Settings comes back on. MY question is: How do I make the Interrupt change permanent?

A:S/PDIF cable into Graphics card to enable sound in HDMI

I'm not an expert in this area but does your graphics card have an HDMI output connector at the back? If so, you don't need your sound card. HDMI carries both HD video and HD sound. If your TV has an HDMI input, you just connect the HDMI cable from the graphics card.

A:Realtek network card not working with external sound card installed

This sounds like an IRQ problem, which is strange because modern PCs can usually resolve these conflicts automatically. But seeing that your system is a Pentium 4, maybe the motherboard is old enough to still be dealing with the issue.

One thing you could try is to perform a Clear CMOS procedure. This will force the motherboard to re-enumerate all the devices and will often solve IRQ conflicts. Note all your current BIOS settings
Shut down the computer > remove the power cord.
Remove the 3v motherboard battery.
Move the CLRTC jumper from pins 1-2 to 2-3.
Touch a metal part of the case and Press and Hold the reset button for approx. 30 seconds to discharge all power from the board.
Put the CLRTC jumper back on pins 1-2.
Replace the 3v battery > replace the power cord > boot.
Immediately go back into BIOS and reset all your preferred settings. If the CLRTC worked you will need to reset the date and time in BIOS.
If that does not work then you could try to get the 2 cards to play nice together by installing them in different locations, if you have the extra slots.

Keep in mind that when removing any card it is important to remove it from Device Manager first. Remove it from Device Manager > shut down > then physically remove the card > then restart into Windows > then you can shut down perform the next procedure.

Sometimes you can simply install the newer card in another PCI/PCIe slot and that will resolve the conflict. (You must re... Read more

I'm going to try to give as much detail as possible but I didn't write down any of the errors unfortunately.
I had a freeze on my computer as I was switching my sound card (a pretty old sound blaster live gamer) from entertainment mode to game mode. I had to reboot as nothing else was working. When the computer came back up it was in VGA mode. I looked at system manager, showed an exclamation mark next to the video card and the sound card (although it was displaying their names). I tried uninstalling and re-installing, and nothing will do the trick. After I installed the video card drivers it gives me some kind of error, like its not identifying the card correctly, it thinks the driver is from a different version of radeon hd. I had this a while back and fixed it by reinstalling windows (which at the time I needed to to anyway, so I didn't pay much attention to it). I really would hate to have it reinstalled again as I would have to install a lot of software that I currently have on it.
Any thoughts? I didn't create a restore point, I tried restoring, it won't help. Any thoughts? I'll give you more info later if you request it, this is all I can think of from the top of my head (and I don't have the computer next to me at this time since I'm at work). I also had a weird error, now that I think of it, that was saying something like "could not read from 0x89489 (I just put some random digits there, it looked something like this, can't remember the exact combina...

Presently I have to use onboard sound card to have audio through HDMI output from video card. The external sound card installed is Xonar DG and it comes with SPDIF output header to be interfaced with video card. But I do not see no such header on the video card. I wonder what video card has such an interface header.

A:What ext video card takes SPDIF audio from ext sound card?

I don't think they meant for it to be plugged into any video card...

I have a computer running Windows XP SP3 on an HP Pavilian a1430n stocked with an integrated Video Card and Sound Card. I'm trying to upgrade my systems video card to a newer GeForce 210 which works great with the computer once its drivers are installed. The problem though is that my integrated sound card stops working and Windows begins asking asking for four "high definition audio bus"'s. The original drivers are in my computers recovery but for some reason, the sound driver is unrecognised by the device manager and even updated drivers from the manufactures (HP, Realtek) don't do the trick. Funny thing is, when I remove the new video card and revert back the the original integrated video port, the sound card begins to work again as if nothings been changed. I've tryed multiple times the remove and reinstall the hardware but get the same outcome. (even tryed to introduce a non-integrated sound card and still no luck). So if anyone has any clue as to what the fix might be, I'm all ears.

A:Install New Video Card and Sound Card Stops Working

Check in the Bios under chipset on the advanced tab make sure the integrated audio is still enabled after installing the video card.

I'm helping a friend with his comp and have gone brain dead. I need to figure out what sound card and what video card he has in his computer. I'd prefer not to open it up and neither of them are showing up in the device manager. I need to find them to install drivers. Any suggestions?

Go to CNET and download SANDRA Standard 2004. It will tell you more about your machine than you really need to know. There are a couple of other programs that will do much the same. Sandra is the one whose name I can recall at 02:38 in the morning.

Does anyone have any tips on a good 802.11g PC card? I'd really like to get one with a connector for an antenna. Basically, what I'd like to accomplish is sharing one cable internet connection with some buddies on the other side of my apartment complex. Figured this may be an interesting way. Don't worry, we do have a wireless router, I'm just trying to get a better signal.
Also, we have 2 wireless routers; is there a way for them to talk and share one internet connection?



A:Need a good 54g card w/ antenna connector

Routers only run in gateway mode, so there is no way to share the connection that way. I'd consider something like this DWL-G810 D-Link wireless bridge, you can connect multiple computers through a simple switch on the other side of the bridge. You can also a directional antenna for better range, and it supports WPA for security concerns.

Well I just bought a new computer I get home plug in my graphics card and get the molex adapter with the 6 pin plug that goes into the graphics card to grab a hand full of sata wires. WTF do they make these new computers with the sata cables to piss me off?

I read around and saw that there SHOULD be a 6 pin connecter coming straight out of the power supply in the new computers but of course (just because it is ME) there is none. So my question is what am I suposed to do, is there any adapters that go from sata to 6pin or even sata to molex?

I have two more questions 1: I bought a new computer like I sed and I was deciding between and AMD quad core phenom 9100e X4 1.8 OR the intel Q6600 2.4. My gut instinct sed take the Q6600 take it and never let it go BUT I asked the guy there and he told me AMD is MUCH better than intel he even went as far to say that intel is grbage. Now I have heard that AMD is better for gaming BUT I do not think that this guy realized WHICH AMD quad core I was looking at. I really think I should have gotten the Q 6600 which is proly what I will do tomorrow since this lack of power connector has givin me incentive. I would like your opinions though Does ANYONE suggest the 9100e over the Q6600???

I got a flat panel monitor as a hand me down. The only problem is that it uses the MDR20 connector. I'm pretty sure that there is not a cable converter(VGA). Does anyone know a decent video card with this connector that also runs on XP. Thanks!

A:video card w/MDR20 connector

Hi pscottlee

You can probably use any card that has a DVIF output if you buy an adaptor like DVIF-MDR20M Adapter as seen here. http://www.networktechinc.com/cable-usb.html

Some Ati cards also use the MDR20M connector. More information on your connector and some of the video cards that have it is given here.
