Net zero doesn't detect a dial tone when i am trying to connect

I have had this reoccuring problem with net zero over the past few weeks
i use my phone to connect and i have the cables connected to the phone
and computer and when i try to connect it doesn't go through and says that
no dial tone is detected
i have already done everything that they have suggested and sometimes
it will connect and then for an unknown reason will disconnect me and i
try again and it will not work...i even deleted the program and reinstalled
it to see if that makes a difference and it doesn't
i am basically fed up with net zero and will not be using their services
again once my commitment is over on june 1st
till then i have been using my computer at the library, as they have wi-fi access
i would like to be able to use the service at home since i am still paying for
it...i haven't called net zero because they charge for the technical support and i have a feeling i will get nowhere with them anyway and they don't speak english very clearly and it wouldn't be worth my time
i hope you can help me with this
thanks very much

Try lowering the settings of your modem so that it will not cut-off and try modem diagnostics to be sure that your modem is functioning well. or try to replace the phone cord you are using.

No dial tone


Your computer shouldn't have a dial-tone. If it's your phone that you're talking about, ensure that there's a correct connection. If that doesn't work, try using a different phone. If the issue remains, call your phone provider and they will come and fix it.

Cannot connect to isp using modem (dialup) get error code 680. using vista home premium.


error code 680 means there is no dial tone.

manually attach a phone to the phone jack you are connecting to and check if there is a dial tone. if there is no dial tone on that jack try a diff phone jack. if still fails call your telco.

if there is dial tone to other jacks it means the previous jack is faulty or damage.

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.

Modem problem


Disconnect the phone line from the modem and connect a normal phone to this phone line. Lift the handset and check it you have a dial tone and see if you can dial out.
If you don't get a dial tone then there is a fault with the phone line and it needs to be repaired before you can use your modem.

I was given a think pad 2647 and I can't get on the internet.


It may not detect it automatically. You will need to configure your dial up modem if you are trying to connect to the internet that way. Go into the network connections and go through the wizard there. It should ask you for the telephone number to dial for internet access so have that handy. If you don't get that box, you went to the wrong area.
