Re: CompaQ armada laptop
I did a google search on the make of that laptop and came up with 366MHz thats not bad.
Theres a modem socket on the side of that model plug it in with the cord in the bag it will be ther I imagine if NOT then you will have to buy one ortry the phone card it should fit the socket.
Dont buy anymore PC cards as they connect to another computer. You can only go on the net if the othr computer is already connected.
Check in the control panel for the modem and test it if its ok then you can connect. You will hear the dial tone then or at least you should. Come bck here for more info if you need it....

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.
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.
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.
Yes.Get rid of it.I have a Satellite also and do agree configuration was dodgy at first but the range in Wi-fi was not even 50 ft. as opposed the 100 ft. promised.But finally,after it shorted out my dial tone like most other 6520's I just went back to my trusty speedstream 4100.Good-luck.
The error 680 means There is no dial tone.
The modem is not detecting a dial tone
There are many possible causes of a No Dial Tone Error.
1.Check cable is correctly inserted into back of modem and phone socket
2.Check properties of connection, make sure correct modem is being used
3.Disable "wait for dialtone before dialing" in My Computer > Dial Up Networking > Properties of Connectoid > Configure > Connection > remove checkmark under call preferences
4.Try removing fax machines or other devices connected to the line
5.Make sure no one is using the telephone when trying to connect
