Question about Genius GM56PCI-L (FM9648001) Modem
I am using Winfax to send fax out but fail due to "no dail tone" . I been connected Winfax with 'Genius"- Smart usb56k modem successfully. Is it fail due to outdate modem driver? if yes, Can you send me the latest modem driver?
The win modems were junk and were software modems and worked about half the time, but if your modem says no dial tone then you need to try a new phone cord check that the phone cord is firmly pushed into the slot, if the wire fell out make sure the tiny wires are not bent on the phone card, so if you replace the old phone cord that will test that theory if it still does not work then try your modem setup, do you have the modem set faster than 9800 baud rate if so it won't work but would still not cause no dial tone. Also is the modem securely in it's slot? if it still does not work go to a command prompt and type ata and hit enter does the modem respond ok? if not you need to open control panel remove the modem and try reinstalling the software drivers hope this helps and good luck, if you buy a new modem buy a hardware modem, they are more expensive but are much more reliable.

Usually the no dial tone error is not a driver problem but rather a problem with the modem itself. Modems are really finicky and even the slightest surge through the phone cord from an electrical storm can cause the modem not to get a dial tone. You will need to replace your modem and that will solve the issue.
