Do you use the voice message system BT 1571? if so and you have messages waiting you will have an interrupted dial tone on your line. On some modems this causes them to output a no dial tone message - the solution of course is to clear your messages - worth a check before you buy a new modem
No I don't have anything like this, but thanks for the suggestion.
Morning Dennis, Kevin. I have just found two modems here in the office. Both CNR. Fortunately I have such a slot on my mb. One I know came out of my previous desktop, and is the same make, and uses the same driver as the PCI I have at home. The problem is sorting which is which. They both look identical. I really need some way of finding out which one is the Smartlink, as I will have no drivers for the other.
I've just upgraded to broad band, so I've got a spare dial up moden going begging. It's a stand alone Robotics 56K Pro. You can set volumes so you can hear what the modem is doing. If it's any good to you, you can have it for the price of the postage.
