Error 633: The modem or the other connecting device is already in use or is not configured correctly. What can I do? The client has the ability to use Ethernet, wireless, Cingular Wireless Air Card, but they want to use the modem when there at home. Pain in the butt.

This behavior can occur if you already have an active broadband connection.

Hope this helps.

When in doubt... Google it. :D
