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.

I have a dial tone, but will not dial .I have a HP Pavilion computer and use a dial up service. I delt with HP on this 4 months ago and they sent me a new modem, and curred the problem. Now the problem has...


If it is a USB modem, connect it to a different computer, and try it.
If it fails to connect, with _two_ different computers, then the problem is in the modem, not in your HP computer. Give that information to HP.

Or, switch to high-speed "lite" (as in "lite beer"), for about the same amount per month as for dial-up, and throw the modem away.

Connexant modem can receive a fax but does not see


This is often caused by the wrong country setting in Windows, as different countries use different dialtones.

Make sure your computer is set correctly in Regional and Language Options in Control Panel.

Internet connection


Depends on your system, install modem first then the system should ask for drivers. Make sure your dial up modem drivers are appropriate to your operating system. Try the modem in a different slot, some modems are not compatible with some motherboards. If the My Computer/System/Device Manager can't see the modem, you have to try another modem or slot. Then install or Update drivers once the system sees it and will show Properties of it.

Check the physical connection of the phone line to the computer make sure that it is connected to phone line symbol of the Ethernet adapter. Then make sure that the driver of the adapter is installed properly on the computer or you can try to scan the hardware first before the re-installation of the driver using the adapter.

Do I need a 56K PCI Data Fax Modem for my new computer? If yes, why? If not, why? Thxs.


You only need a modem if you are going to be on a on a dail up internet connection or want to use your computer for faxing.

If you are using a broadband internet connection like cable or DSL, then the modem is not needed.

Hope this helps

Dial-up: Internet Connection


do your pc have a dial-up modem card?
What's the brand? Go to download the latest driver for the modem and try and see.

If not, right click on my computer icon, go to hardware tab, select "device manage", see does it detect any modem driver or not.

If after installing the driver still the same and can't be detected, most properly your modem is going to "heaven".....

Try to change another modem, see whether it can work or not.
