I have a Askey CNR V.92 Modem on XP and over the last few months While being online I would get a box coming up on screen saying i have miseed an incoming phonecall. When i,m notified off this i automatically lose my connection and have to dial up again. I never had this issue before a few months ago.
Anyone know how to stop this happening as its becoming very annoying especially when you try to download something

Call Waiting or

1571? Both these will give the symptoms you describe on a V92 modem.

I have 1571. Is there anyway to stop the 1571 from doing this apart from getting rid of 1571

you can get a 'Call baring' service from BT it works by dialing *261#. It gives a 'this phone is not accepting messages at present', message to the caller. Your phone doesnt even ring.

its cancelled by dialing #261#

you have to pay a few pounds a month for it

Thanks for the information.
Much appreciated

turn off and back on 1571? Call barring sounds a bit drastic.
