Any help welcome. Trying to cure a relatives tiscali dial up connection. He dials but gets no modem screech. Been through all his dial up settings/numbers etc and am pretty sure they are ok. Modem diagnostic check proves ok as all the gobeldegook figures appear. Connected a phone to extension cable and this works fine. Tried another ISP setup but no joy again. Lost for ideas - can anyone suggest anything else to check?. Ta
Sounds like a knackered modem matey. How old is the modem? A mate of mine had the very same problem, diagnostics were fine bot would not connect. For £6 he got a new on, installed it and bingo, conected first attempt.
If the modem actually connects but does not make the data noise, goto the modem properties and click the advanced tab, Check that in the extra settings box there is not a sring like: atm0 ,if there is then delete it as this stops the modem from making it's noise. Regards ZL
Have you installed the correct drivers ? I've had a Creatrix modem that refused to work with the XP allocated drivers, showed up OK and tested fine, just didn't work until I loaded the manufacturers drivers. click here
