dial up and modem help

hi everyone

everytime i dial up to my connection i could hear the dialling noise that you usually hear when using dial up but just recently i havent been hearing the usual dial noise just wondering maybes if my internal modem is going bust.

i believe that somewhere (from memory) in the properties there is a setting for speaker or similar and maybe this setting has changed.

Some modems, especially newer ones, work via the system loudspeakers - so if you have them turned down, you won't hear the dialling with this type of modem.

Some modems have an internal speaker.

I always used to be able to tell from the "screech" if the modem was dialling up correctly.

A word of warning - some ROGUE DIALLERS, the ones that reconnect you to a premium rate or international number, disable the sound to make you unaware that the connection is being redialled.
