Hi there, put a new modem in on a new mother board, on a clean install of windows xp, and I cannot get a dial tone, all the leads and drivers are in correct but it wont get a dial tone. Is it the new modem that is faulty or have i missed something??? Thanks Gary
From Control Panel, Phone and Modem Options, check that you have selected Tone rather than Pulse dialling from Edit on the General tab, Wait for Dial Tone (Modem highlighted, Properties) and that the Device (i.e. modem) is enabled (again General tab).
You have, of course, connected a modem RJ11 lead from your phone system to the modem...:-)
