check your dialling properties to see if it is set to"never dial a connection" if it is uncheck it

I have two very similar modems installed(ones borrowed from a mate as I have lost the driver cd)I d/l'ed the driver but no matter what I have tried my own modem insists that there is no dial tone.I am going to buy another modem later,as they are very cheap.

Have you checked the Wait for Dial Tone box from the Modem's Properties?

It sounds like it's on the wrong Com port. look in devise manager for any yellows. Then go to control panel double click on modem Icon follow the Modem trail and Check Modem Under Modem\ properties\Troubleshoot
