suddenly my internal modem no longer gives off a dialling tone when connecting to the internet. it just connects in silence... i haven't touched any settings that i know of. grateful for some advice as to how to rectify this. thanks marcus

Go into the modem settings and increase the speaker volume.

If XP try a restore point?

If it connects I would not bother

I had this same thing happen when a driver update was installed via the Microsoft update site.
Like above, if it works forget about it. Or go Broadband, there is not tone there either.

Ring sound and Dial tone are different, Dial tone is sound you hear when you lift the phone
