Question about Arris Touchstone 450a (CM450) Modem

1 Answer

No Dial Tone

Hi All,

Got "Triple Play" w TWCable. Things had been fine for 2 years.
Recently, would have to power cycle the modem (Arris Telephony) to get modem to work properly. Web pages were loading too slow. Ping responses were 2-2.5 seconds. Went down to TWC store, and swapped out the modem. Web pages loading normally, but the phone (VoIP) was not getting dial tone. Looked like they gave me a bad modem. Went back down, they gave me another cable modem. But, no fix. Internets fine, TV is fine, but no dial tone. Took a working phone, and jacked it straight into the modems tel.1 port. Phone lites up, but no dial tone.
Dont think both modems phone ports are bad.
What do you think? Is there a MAC address or something the cable company didnt register, which is causing this isue? I'm lost.
BTW TWC cant send a tech until Tuesday, 4.5 days w/o a phone.

Thanx all,

Joe D

    Turns out the when I got the replacement modem, the rep. did not enter that I had Voip. Thats why no dial tone. No one at TWC could figure that out, it had to go to their engineering team to figure things out. Sad............

Sometimes 3 of the 10 lines have busy signals and dont ring. it is erratic. Sometimes they work and sometimes not. no dial tone.


Did you call to see if all 10 phone ports are registered with the MTA macs on there voip servers?

Have them check your downstream signals, make sure your not losing packets or connection?


Make sure to swap out old phone lines with new phone lines.

Or
the ports on that older Docsis 2.0 modem are going bad and I would suggest getting a Docsis 3.0 Multi - Line Telephony Modem. I would call your provider for best suggested modem.

Hope this helps.

Your phone line might be connected to Telephone 1 not 2. That could be the reason why you are not getting a dial tone.

on an arris modem, if the telephone light is solid, then there is dial tone coming into the modem. that means the problem is somewhere in the house wiring. check to make sure the phone line is plugged into line 1 on the back of the modem. next make sure it is plugged into the wall jack. if this is correct then you need the cable co to come out and troubleshoot your inside wiring. as a quick fix, you can plug your phone into the jack on the back of the modem labled line 1/2

Hi sorry about the chat session the other day, i was not able to see your chat message so I end the session, but to help you with your concern, since internet is already working, then the problem here is the VoIP settings on your modem (since you said it has phone ports on the modem), usually resetting the modem wont change the VoIP (Voice over IP) settings. It would be better if you ask you VoIP provider to check if the modem's VoIP settings is setup correctly. If yes, and you have internet with the modem then upgrading the firmware may help.

If you dont have a VoIP provider then you need to get one in order for the phone line to work.

If you already have one, then contact them so they can configure the VoIP settings on that modem.Get your money's worth with their service

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.

VoIP not working after modem replaced


It is possible they have your modem in an internet only class- I would call them and verify the modem is in a class avaiable for phone.

Pulse-dialing with Arris modem?


If you have the current firmware for your modem, it should work with pulse. Arris had to make it's MTA's pulse compatible due to old alarm systems that still utilize pulse dialing.
