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.
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.
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.
