  bowles 15:05 21 Feb 2004

when i turn on my p.c i keep getting this window;
"error connecting to BTOW
opening port...........
Error 680:There was no dial tone
(options are) redial-cancel-more info"
when i use the cancel option,the window keeps popping up frequently.This is on Windows XP.It is annoying cos it happens even if i don,t want to connect to the internet,and when on Word,it over-rides the typing. if this helps;BTOW Aztech CNR.V92 MODEM

If you have a call minder or answering service, check and clear your new messages. This occurs because the call minder gives a series of tones to tell you you have new messages which can sometimes interfere with the modem dial tone
