I am attempting to set up my blackberry so that I can use it as a modem for my laptop. I can follow all of the steps given on several different online guides but when asked to set up a dial up network it says the computer cannot make the connection. Do i have to have a dial up modem to make this work? What else could be the problem?

I have d-link 560e modem and i want at command to disable line hangup inorder to open other application after the connection is up


If the software that you are using with the modem does not have the ability to set the modem to autoanswer you will need to configure the modem manually. You will have to use Hyperterminal to enter the command into the modem's memory.
(if you do not have Hyperterminal installed please add it by going to Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs > Windows Setup > Communications > Details...)

Have the modem connected to your computer and ensure that it is working fine. Go to:
Start > Programs > Accessories > [Communications] > Hyperterminal .... Hyperterm.exe > name the connection "modem" > Connect Using... Select COM3 or COM4 (on whichever port the modem was assigned to) > Bits per second 9600 > OK.
After that try typing ATZ command and press ENTER (you may not see what you are typing). The response from the modem should be OK.
Apply the following command:

ATS0=3

Now write the new settings into the modem's memory by typing the following command and pressing Enter:

AT&W

The response should be "OK"
The modem will now be set to auto-answer after 3 rings.

Computer modem and dial tone


Hello Mikenrgrsvll

This problem can be due to the software not handling a certain dial tone rather than a specific hardware fault. Around the world there is a variance in the signal quality of the dial tone which causes a report of no dial tone detection. Disable the dial tone detection to prevent the system from trying to detect a dial tone.
Disabling dial tone detection for modems:
Windows XP
  1. Click Start
  2. Select Control Panel
  3. Click Switch to Classic View to change the control panel view
  4. Click Phone and Modem Options
  5. Select the Modem Tab
  6. Select the installed modem (Example: Lucent Technologies Soft Modem AMR)
  7. Click the Properties button
  8. Select the Modem tab in the Properties window
  9. Click Wait for dial tone before dialing to remove the check from the checkbox
  10. Select the Advanced tab
  11. Add X3 to the Extra initialization commands field in the Extra Settings box
  12. Click OK twice
  13. Select Switch to Category View to change back the control panel view
  14. Close Control Panel
if this does not work trying re-installing modem drivers.

hope this helps, have a good day.

Can't fax - modems not being detected


ok, a modem on COM8 ? Normally modems are on COM1, COM3. You need to fix that problem first. Most softwares are not setup to scan that high for the modem. (ps: COM2, COM4 are usually for other devices - in the old days, mice were on COM2). Follow instructions:

START
CONTROL PANEL
PHONE/MODEMS
Click over to MODEMS
Click on Proper MODEM
PROPERTIES
ADVANCED
ADVANCED MODEM SETTINGS
Change COM8 port to COM3
click OK, probably going to have to restart computer.

Let's see if this actually solves the issue. if it did not and you need more help, contact me through this site and we will proceed forward.

Trying to launch internet explorer.it gives me error 680.


680 - There is no dial tone.

All versions of Windows are affected by this error.
No dial tone: There are many possible causes of a No Dial Tone Error.
First, try testing the modem's ability to detect dial tone and to dial by using HyperTerminal with the direct to COM port connect method - see Using HyperTerminal. If you give your modem an AT&FX1 command, and then a dial command, dial-tone detection will be disabled; if you still do not get dial tone, the modem may not be installed correctly (especially if it is a PCI or soft-modem); or the cable from the modem to the phone-line jack may be bad or installed in the wrong connector on the modem - try another line cord, and make sure you are plugged in to the LINE - not phone - jack on the modem. Plug a regular phone into the phone jack on the modem and make sure it has dial tone. The modem may also be defective. Many new modems come with an electronic circuit instead of the traditional electro-mechanical relay used to take the modem off-hook. Some of these designs are proving less reliable; often, they will be 'stuck' in the off-hook position, so unplugging, the plugging in the phone cord may give dial-tone. If this is the case, the modem needs repair or replacement.
If the modem will blind dial (x1), but not detect dial-tone otherwise, the problem is likely to be in the proper selection of the Country in Windows->ControlPanel->Telephony or in improper installation of the modem or lack of support for your country in the driver you are using. Check to see if there are updated drivers for your modem.
If the modem dials properly with detection (x3) in HyperTerminal, but does not detect dial tone when using DUNs, the problem may be DUNs (check for upgrade or re-install) or the proper setup and modem selection for the DUNs connectoid.
For Embarq telephone service customers, this error can indicate that you have a message waiting in your voicemail. Embarq changes the dial-tone sound to a "fast" busy signal when a new message is present in your voicemail box. This "fast" busy signal can confuse the modem into thinking there is no-dial tone present on the line.

The port the modem is attached to could not be opened; Opening the modem device failed with error 000005aa


Sounds like a hardware problem

First > try changing the modem port (default is com3, try changing it to com4 or com5 whichever is free)

Try querying the modem again

Second > Contact your modem manufacturer

Pentium III 800 mhz T21 Thinkpad Internet connection problems


why fight it , let it be on com 1 then,
go into the bios and disable the serial ports .
that may be the easiest fix as long as you don't need the serial port for anything.
but if you have a serial mouse oh boy.

Modem in use


Try the following:

-Open the Control Panel
-Open System
-Click on Device Manager
-Click on Modems
-Highlight and right click on the listed modem
-Select Uninstall

Close out anything open and Restart.

IF (!) Windows is cooperating, it should 'find a new device' and reinstall the Winmodem (it's only software and a little telephone line matching).

If Windows fails to recognize the 'new device,' you will have to manually reinstall it via the 'add new hardware' path in the Control Panel.

As with any Windows stuff - rotsa ruck!
