    Install D-Link DSL-200 modem Problem
    « on: October 09, 2013, 08:24:01 PM »
    Hello

    I want to install the driver of a D-Link DSL-200 modem. But installer tells:
    "The DSL Modem is already installed. To upgrade the software, you must remove the current software and then run Setup again later."
    This USB modem driver has a particular way for install. The modem should not plug into computer until the wizard tells to do this (in the one of ending steps); and then, it tells to plugging in the modem for finishing install.
    I think that I have plugged in it and done something before starting install as above; and for this reason some registry and/or files are made, without completing install.
    I used its driver remover from D-Link website, but problem remained. I think I have to find and delete existing registry and/or files of driver, but I do not know how. 
    Please help me for resolving this problem.  ??? 

    O.S:  Windows XP SP2

    DO NOT CONNECT THE USB CABLE

    You must install the software first.

      Yes. I have read the manual, but unfortunately after connecting the USB cable! And as I said, difficult occurred for the same.
      Now I want: How to find and delete registry (and files, if needed) that left from wrong action that create problem for correct installing. Software installer show:
      "The DSL Modem is already installed (as written in topic)."

      You don't need to go to the registry...
      Go to Control Panel/Devices...right clik the modem and select remove...
      Go to Add/Remove programs and remove the D-Link software...
      Dis-connect the modem and power down...
      Re-boot...install the software and wait til the prompt to connect the Modem.

      True.  But I thought all modems had ethernet, so no drivers needed.

      It requires drivers...it's ancient...but still needs drivers to work properly.

      Footnote.
      DSL modems with only USB connection should be avoided.
      Cheap DSL modems with a Ethernet  jack are under $40 at retail stores here in the USA. And the work with any OS.

        Thanks, All

        Dear "patio"; about device manager, modem is not in it. Although I think if it was installed, it would be in "Network Adapters" (not "Modems").
        In addition to, D-Link software is not in the "Add or Remove Programs" list.
