Go to speaker volume in modem properties in control panel, depending on your O/S.

just seen your Win98,... same as above...

problem is.... the volume slide is greyed out

In Win 98SE you have to do it in two places, at least I had to in mine if I remember correctly.

1. Control Panel > Modems > General tab > Properties button.

2. My Computer > Dialup Networking, right click your connection icon > Properties > Configure button.

But if one of them is greyed out, you might have a problem muteing the sound.

isnt there a way by talking directly to the modem? i seem to remember that you can....

I can't remember Win98 that well now but if you can find your way to an 'Advanced' tab amongst the modem properties you should be able to find a box labelled something like 'Extra Settings'.

In there type M0. (That is: the letter M followed by a zero.)

go to control panel/modems/properties/connection/advanced and do as daconnor says in type M0 in the extra settings box. Sometimes this reqires a reboot to work.

My Computer>Properties>Device Manager>highlight your modem?Properties>Modem tab. There is a slider adjustment for the speaker volume from low to high.

that M0 is the one i was thinking off!
many thanks again
