If it's a Broad Band Modem it does not need dial-up tone. Disable the Onboard Dial-Up Modem in Device manager. It will then look at the new Hardware and not relate it the onboard one

The problem could also be in the IE settings. <Tools><Internet Options><Connections> and make sure <Never dial a connection> is selected.
