Hi, I got a new MacBook today and it's fantastic, except I'm having issues with the Apple USB Modem. (I know, I'm a dialup dinosaur, but we're moving in a couple months and I'm just sticking with it for now.) Anyway, I hook up the line to it and 9 times out of 10 I get a "carrier not found" message. Which would make me think I configured it wrong but it HAS connected a couple times, so I don't know what's going on. The old iMac works fine on the line. The phone lines to our house are crap (again, moving soon) but I don't see why the one computer works fine but the new one doesn't. Any clues? I might try calling our ISP in morning too. Thanks!
