Dial Up

  Woodie29 14:47 14 Mar 2005

When trying to connect to the internet via adsl from plusnet I get the error message 'no dial tone' I have checked that all the splitters are in the right place that the modem is not faulty etc and there is a dial tone and still the same message - can anyone help ?

There should be an option in modem settings to dial without waiting for dial tone.

If you can, plug the modem directly into the BT master socket and unplug everything else on the line. Does it work now?

I'm maybe wrong,but ADSL is a "signal" on the line,not a dialup arrangement.There would be only ADSL signal or none,not a "dial tone"

Therefore,I would be checking IE options for "Never dial a connection"

Sound like the Modem is Miss-configured

Hi Woodchip, just been going through the messages, and came across your's. At present I am having to use my old Win 98, as my XP had some problems a few month's ago and had to have it re-installed. Since then I have been unable to dial-up on my ISP, I comes up with the error message- no modem. The computer was working fine before the problems that made me have to re-install.So could it be what you told Chegs, if so what does'Miscofig mean? I am very new to computers so am not upto date with the terminology

Is the modem 'synching'? You should have a power light on steady, then the ADSL light should flash then remain steady after a few seconds.

Have you re-installed the modem? Check the status in Device Manager.

The PC may be trying to use your old dial-up modem, which may be disconnected.

The 'No dial tone' message is also common to ADSL, as Windows doesn't have a 'No ADSL' message.

The Problem remains the same on 3 different routers all have been installed uninstalled and reinstalled - I have checked and the config is exactly the same as on my other pc that works fine in a different house - so with the new netgear router I have got a message that says dsl carrier down - having spoken to my isp they are going to carry out tests on the line between the house and the exchange to see if that is the problem.
