No disrepect, but id you are in a broadband enabled area then ditch dial-up altogether. You'll be greatful you did!

Have you set the port speed at a low level

It's possible that the laptop has a better modem. I've also found that in some cases a modem will work better in a different PCI slot.

There are a number of possible reasons, including the need to update/acquire the right driver and checking if you have the correct country (i.e. UK) enabled.

This appears to be the drivers link:

Being a US modem it may very well have the States as the default country..:-)

Sans le Sou: Port speed connected @ 11,200,
Stuartli: Ireland set as default country and updated driver installed

Port speed should be 15000+ figure...:-)

Is it working properly now?

Think port setting is 115200, also if you click on your modem in device manager and select properties, under advanced are some sliders that may need a tweak

Sorry, going from memory - it is 115,200...:-)

under advanced are some sliders that may need a tweak. Tried but to no avail
