Installing ADSL modem on BartPE

I don't know if anyone else here uses PE-Builder to make bootable XP recovery CDs, but maybe you can help me in the right direction here.

After many hours of trial and error, I've got my PCI ADSL WAN adapter installed on a BartPE CD. This is the same modem I use to connect to plusnet ADSL. I am able to get an ADSL connection established and it appears working but I cannot get a connection, I get an error 797 and a message about modem not found or busy. Any ideas what to look for?
Many thanks.

Hi,

If you've created a connection manually in XP in the Network Connections control panel make sure you following the "Dial-up modem" router rather than "Broadband Modem" otherwise XP will try and establish a PPPoE conection rather than PPPoA.

Thanks very much for replying, I'm not very familiar with these things but I'll look into this to see if it's the problem.
Many thanks.
