Re: No longer dialing Lond Distance

If your modem can fax a local number or dial-up an Internet Service Provider in your Local Area then your Internal Modem is just fine. Check if the configuration of your Modem to access outside long-distance number. Go to your Control Panel-Open Phone & Modem Options-Dialing Rules (Tab)- then click on EDIT Button. You can enter the number needed to have a long distance dialing. If you don't know the number needed for long-distance dialing then ask your Local Phone Service Provider.

Will a westell modem work on a computer that had dial up.

What do you mean that pc has dial up? Did you mean that you have a dial up connection to the internet? If that is the case, using a westell modem is not necessary because dial up connection just uses a phone cable directly plug in at the back of your pc where you will see a port for phone cable. If you have a dsl connection and your pc is currently configured for fial up set-up, then you can use the westell modem but need to check first if westell modem s compatible with your internet service provider.

I got a dell x51 pda it has a ambicom 56k modem do I use the card to connection the internet?

You need to configure "Dial-Up Networking", and you need to find an Internet Service Provider in your "local" telephone-calling area that still offers "dial-up" service, and sign-up with them.
They can provide instructions on how to configure dial-up networking to their setup.

I have two dell laptops that are having the same problem of no dial tone

First of all, be sure that the connection you have configured on the computers are Dial Up connections.

If you have restrictions activated on the telephone line, removing them might help. Some other services of your telephone provider can also prevent your modems to properly detect the dial tone. It might be worth to take a look in that direction.

It might also be a problem with the telephone line. Try also to dial the number normally entered in the dial-up connections. You should hear a ringing tone shortly followed by noises similar to a fax machine. If you hear this, you access correctly to your providers dial up server and the problem would be with the two computers.

My sierra modem won't connect. it shows - Error 734: the PPP Link Control Protocol was terminated

hi there.

This issue may occur if either of the following conditions are true:
  • Multi-link negotiation is turned on for the single-link connection.

  • The dial-up connection security configuration is incorrectly configured to use the Require secured password setting.
To resolve this issue kindly follow the below steps and do not skip any of them:
  1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Network and Dial-up Connections.

    NOTE: For Windows Server 2003, click Start, point to Control Panel, and then point to Network Connections.
  2. Right-click the appropriate dial-up networking connection, and then click Properties.
  3. Click the Networking tab, and then click Settings.
  4. Click to clear the Negotiate multi-link for single link connections check box (if it is selected).
  5. Click OK, and then click OK.
  6. Double-click the connection, and then click Dial.

Assuming that Windows has recognized the modem, and has loaded the correct device-drivers, Windows can use the modem.

You'll need to find an Internet Service Provider that provides "dial-up" service.

You'll need to have a land-line telephone (not a cell-phone) with your local telephone-company.

Connect a 4-wire cable (not an 8-wire Ethernet cable) from the "line" port on the modem to the telephone wall-jack.

Then, follow the instructions given you by your Internet Service Provider to configure your modem to connect to their dial-up server. Or, telphone them, and their Technical Support staff will guide you through the necessary configuration steps.

HP USB Modem does not break dial tone

If the information connected to your post is all correct (56k V90 usb), and you are using one line for both the internet and the fax, you should hang up from the internet before you try to dial out the fax.

You have not indicated your PC model, so I don't know what operating system you are using. For XP and newer versions, you have to set up and configure the fax using the wizard or configuration software. If you have not done that yet, you need to.

In xp, go to start, Programs , Accessories , Communication , Fax , and then click Fax Console.

You said your computer is new. Win 7 and Vista are much the same:

1.Click the Start button , click All Programs, and then click Windows Fax and Scan.

2.At the bottom of the left pane, click Fax, and then click New Fax on the toolbar to launch the Fax Setup wizard.

3.Click Connect to a fax modem and follow the instructions.

You also need to make sure that your fax/modem is correctly listed in the control panel. In XP, start, control panel, printers and devices. If you do not have a fax printer listed, you need to "install a local fax printer."

The installation wizard should work in both OS without much trouble. If you do have difficulty, Microsoft and adobe both have "virtual printers" you can use. Look in Microsoft office or online.

Also check control panel of 7 to make sure that your modem and fax are listed correctly. Thanks for using Fixya.

I have an agere modem that came with toshiba satellite laptap the modem is set for US standards I am currently based in Greece -- do i need an initialization code to get it working?

You don't need to provide initializing code based on the country. Create your new modem connection using new connection wizard. Provide it with username, password and telephone no. to dial. Select your agere modem to use for dialing. It should work. If it not contact your telephone service provide to know about any initialization code needed to dial and connect into their network.

My ethernet light is blinking

Make sure you have internet. The ethernet light is blinking because what ever u have plugged into it is talking to the modem. The modem will then take that request and ask for it on the DSL/internet line. Make sure the DSL light is steady on and the internet light is on or flashing with activity.

Pulse-dialing with Arris modem?

If you have the current firmware for your modem, it should work with pulse. Arris had to make it's MTA's pulse compatible due to old alarm systems that still utilize pulse dialing.
