incoming call alert on 56k modem

  ray27 18:47 19 May 2004

My son is on a 56k modem , he cannot get broadband at the moment were he lives, and my grandson spends all his time chatting to friends and surfing with the result nobody can get through to my son.

Is there a programme that exists that will notify you of an incoming call whilst you are on the net?

If so were can we get it from?

Many thanks for any advice

Don't know whether this is true or not but I have been told that if you have "Call Waiting" enabled it will cut off the connection to the Internet.
