Have you checked the password and dialup number is correct? Do this (if you are using 98 or older) from the Connections Folder, or 'Start'....Settings....Network Connections in XP.. sorry dont know any others
Initially make sure the computer is the sole connection to your phone plug....use the phone handset & plug into the socket above the phone connection to the modem on the back of the computer...is there a dial tone in the phone? If so the problem is likely to be the modem or its connection to the computer If there is no dial tone st the phone then the problem is the connection from the phone plug to the modem.
From memory... open Control Panel... click Modems.. select your modem... there should be a 'query' or 'diagnostics' option... this will check your modem... also try looking in the 'Devices' (System icon in control panel) and look to see if your modem is in the list, if it is, right hand click and select Properties.. to check its resources and that it is enabled.
