Lucent Win Modem HELP!!!!

OK.
I upgraded my computer from 98 to XP.
Then when i tried to connect to internet by 56k v.90 LT win modem, there was no dial up sound. So i rang a help-line and they told me to put something like "at&fx......" in the script or something. This made the dial up sound come up, but after the message "verifying user name and password", the modem disconnects and gives an error.
I think a lot of people with lt win modem and windows xp have these problems.
can somebody please help

P.S. my user name and password is 100% correct
its something else thats wrong
: )

The driver that is installed is probably the XP native (PnP) one. Unreliable. If the problem started with the OS migration you know it is SW related. I would get the Lucent XP driver from their website and update it in dev mgr device driver update wizard.

As Greg says you need the correct driver. The driver from your PC's maker is usually your best bet but if they don't offer one then you can use the generic one.
