Having problems with a laptop modem (portege 3110ct, win 200 toshiba interanl v.90 modem.

I've been trying to connect to the net, Set up my ISP provider+pone number, login name and password (have checked that these are correct)

When I try to connect, I can here the modem dial out, and nothing only an ingage done, if I pick up the phone the nice lady informs me to put the phone down and try again? So I have tried with my ISP alternitive number but every time I try to connect to the net, I get the same reply.

But I'm not having any problems with my main computer, even though all the ISP details are the same?

Have I missed something (new to laptops) or is there a reasons why this might be happening?
