Try dialing from the PC to a mobile phone , just to make sure the modem is working and getting out , by checking this it whittles down the possibilities , if it works , then you know to start looking at your internet settings , is it fails you know to look at the modem setup.

For some isps (maybe most), you cannot make any dialup connection if you hide caller id (i.e. withhold your number when you make call). You need to disable this or put prefix (cannot remmeber what 1???).

I think what JerryJay means is put ,,1470 in front of the number to be dialled.

I believe call waiting does this as well, in order for the modem to work it has to be disabled

no call waiting on either line the system has been tested on but slight progress the external one works but neither of the internal ones ???( I know the easy answer)but any thoughts on the internal problem

Try different PCI slot, maybe IRQ conflict or something. Did you sit modem tightly?
