intermittent dial up problems

  trew 34 13:39 01 Feb 2005

after checking modem and ports which seem to be ok we have problems connecting to tiscali, not all the time but MOST OF THE TIME! We get error 680,no dial tone, but can't find the problem.
One question though my modem says it uses port COM 3 and in the ports setting I can only find port COM 1 and port COM 2. And everything says: works properly! What do I do???

have you got any services like answerphone or call waiting /baring with your telco as these can interfere with the dial tone

Try another modem cable, one you know works OK.
