Interrupted dial tone causing connection problems

  [DELETED] 22:40 05 Dec 2003

When a message is left on BT's answerphone (1571) it causes an interrupted dial tone which causes problems whn trying to connect. How do I sort this on XP home. Thanks TR

access your messages first to regain dial usual d/tone !

No, there is a setting to change for this, I've done it previously on 98SE but don't remember how. TR

Try control panel,phone & modem options, modem, properties take tick out of "wait for dial tone before dialling"

thanks for your response TommyRed, but it's not that. I've checked that settings on my laptop (XP)are same as on the other computer, and that isn't giving problems.
