I haven't used my laptop for a while. It uses Windows XP Service Pack 2, but, everytime I try to connect to the internet, although it dials the numbers it fails to make a connection giving me the above reply. I have tried both my claranet and ntlfreedom email providers numbers but get the same result. There must be a setting wrong somewhere, can anybody help me with this one. Thanks.
I've now tried it with the 1470 included and with the website to make sure the number to dial is correct. Just remains to check for pulse or tone dialling, but, it does make the sounds of dialling and receives the verbal message to hang up and try again.
Check the country code and look out for missing '0's in the number, you may have to put all the number in the one box and leave the area code box empty. There is usually a reason given in the recorded message, does it say why? Can you try dialing the number from an ordinary phone to see if you get the same message?
That's very strange, I've just dialled the same number on my landline and it connects through, yet, when dialled from my modem I get the usual message. It must be a setting on my modem I imagine, but goodness knows what...
