Noise from Modem

  sak41 15:53 05 Nov 2003

When i connect to the internet my modem makes a screeching noise while it is dialing up, but stops when it makes a connection. My operating system is XP and my ISP is Freeserve. Can anyone advise me?

m8 I have not laughed for so long! in ages.

Go to start
Network Connection
Right mouse click your modem and select properties
then a setting in there should be for the modem speaker with a option to run on or off

hope this helps.....the noise is normal though not a problem with your pc!

You should actually find a slider control to turn it up or mute completely.

The noise can be irritating, but it does provide a guide as to whether your modem is dialling out correctly or cannot get through to the server.

Some modems have their own speaker and others use the system case speaker.

Hi all... I'm a new maember to this site (and what a great site it is.
To stop my modem from making it's data/fax niose when connecting I whent to control panel>phones and modems>, click on the modem tab select your modem from list ( you probably only have one there) then click on the properties button, click on the advanced tab at the top and in the EXTRA INITIALIZATION COMMANDS box type: atm0
click ok and you should be noise free. Like I said it worked for and other modems that I used the string for, if it does not work just delete the atm0 string.
hope this helps
Regards Gman
