Failing that a new modem can be bought for less than £10

and in the Telephony settings in control panel that Tone is ticked and also your Area code in the location to dial from.
Also check the regional settings is for your region and also the Time, Keyboard isn't US.
Modem should plug into the Line and not Phone socket as marked on Modem at rear. Unles you have just the one socket on the modem.

Also check that you have the TCP/IP & the Dial-up adapter in network icon in control panel.

Other thing to check is does your dial up number have 1470 or 1470,, or 1470, prefixing the dial up number ?
