The modem settings can be accessed through the windows control panel as follows:
•Opening the Control Panel The Windows Control Panel can be opened by: Selecting *Start > Control Panel (on Windows Vista) - OR - Start > Run > Type 'Control' and select OK (on Windows XP)
In the Control Panel, do the following: •Select Phone and Modem Options (Brings up the phone and modems properties sheet) •Click on the 'Modems' tab •Highlight the modem's name •Click the properties button •Look for the words 'Device Status' on that page. If the message box says 'This device is working properly' then the modem is working ok. The Phone and Modem Options also has a tab called 'Dialing Rules'. The dial tone might work if you 'Edit' the existing Dialing Rule or Create a 'New' Rule. When you 'Edit' or create a 'New' rule, enter the requested information as best you can. You can always go back and 'Edit' the rule to keep testing it. I hope this gives you some ideas for resolving the dial tone problem.

Save yourself alot of grief. Purchase a PCMIA or USB modem and your done. A very inexpensive fix. I am a certified HP Master tech and I will tell you that HP does have some consistent problems withg their modems. If you can spare a few bucks go to www.driveragent.com and try to locate an updated driver.
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
Select Control Panel
Click Switch to Classic View to change the control panel view
Click Phone and Modem Options
Select the Modem Tab
Select the installed modem (Example: Lucent Technologies Soft Modem AMR)
Click the Properties button
Select the Modem tab in the Properties window
Click Wait for dial tone before dialing to remove the check from the checkbox
Select the Advanced tab
Add X3 to the Extra initialization commands field in the Extra Settings box
Click OK twice
Select Switch to Category View to change back the control panel view
Close Control Panel
if this does not work trying re-installing modem drivers.
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.
if your netbook doesnt have built in dialup modem that mean u cant connect it to a dial up connection. most of netbook in market use wifi as primary connection or sometime comes with built in GSM modem to connect to internet. that meanc the option you can try is to buy a external USB dial up modem
just go to the modem properties and you will see a option there called wait for dail tone if u see tick mark there please remove the tick mark your problem might get solved. if this doenst work then check up ur cable and the modem
If you have a router on your broadband, you need a RJ45 network cable - right next to the modem port on your laptop is a network port - this will use the correct cables you need to connect to your router.
If you don't have a router but only a broadband modem, just connect it to the USB port on your laptop, install the software and you should be good to go.
Well its sounds ike the modem may poked ut lets assume it is not perhaps yo have doube checked your conection is correct if it is TRY ANOTHER modem because they are known probems for your coonections especially dialup are you meaning this?
