just installed a neto dragon internal (Very cheap) modem from PC world, into a new computer. the motherboard is an all in Lan, Vga, and audio thing and works fine, the modem is detected and installed and modem windows diagnostics report its working ok (win98SE) but it can't get a dial tone. I've changed the leads and checked the phone line and they are ok...any ideas???
Plummers, do you have the BT 1571 facility as part of your phone arrangement? If so, when you have a message waiting it alters the dialling tone. I found this out when my dial-up connection couldn't get a dialling tone, even though everything else was working properly.
