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.

Assuming you have checked the connection to actually make sure you have dial-tone, you could go into the modem's properties page (Control Panel -> Modems-> Properties) then go into the MODEM tab and make sure to UN-check the box that says "Wait for dial-tone before connecting". Sometime the modems don't detect dial-tone properly.
