Dial Up Modem check

  pj123 19:20 15 Jun 2006

Some time ago I used to use a telephone number (08451 121212) to test analogue modems installed in computers to log on to the Internet.

Just tried to do this on a secondhand laptop but this number seems to be non existant now.

There was a thread with another number which can be used to test modems but I can't find it now.

Can anyone give me a number to log on to the internet via a dialup modem without signing up to an ISP?

Thanks, brundle. Giving it a try now.

Problem solved. It was the telephone cable (faulty). Tried another cable and all is now OK.
