Re: 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.

Dial tone of my phone disappears whenever i switch on my computer and my d link dial up modem can't find dial tone. What should i do?

Disconnect the telephone-cable from the computer's modem.
Does your telephone regain the dial-tone?

If so, then replace the computer's modem -- it is going "off-hook" as soon as you turn on the computer, not just when you try to use the modem to open a dial-up session.

on an arris modem, if the telephone light is solid, then there is dial tone coming into the modem. that means the problem is somewhere in the house wiring. check to make sure the phone line is plugged into line 1 on the back of the modem. next make sure it is plugged into the wall jack. if this is correct then you need the cable co to come out and troubleshoot your inside wiring. as a quick fix, you can plug your phone into the jack on the back of the modem labled line 1/2
