Incoming 'phone call activates modem.......

  Kaacee 13:09 20 Jul 2003

A couple of times recently,an incoming 'phone call on BT landline has activated my modem and dialled up AOL (my ISP provider)the PC has been switched on but left in desktop mode.

Can anyone throw any light on as to why this should happen and what i can do to prevent it happening in the future.

Many thanks

Your modem may be set to "wake on ring" in either its own setup software or in the BIOS. I would check the BIOS first (press Del or F1, as appropriate, when prompted at bootup) and check the modem settings. Once wake on ring is cancelled it should behave itself. LC.
