Why doesnt my modem get an answer?
Posted by Sky36 [send private reply] at December 01, 2001, 09:14:06 PM Well I have a problem with my modem. First of all I have never really used this modem due to the fact that I didnt need to since I had a broadband connection. Now however the stupid company is canceling their service so that I must revert to dial-up. Ok, heres whats going on. I try dialing into the ISP and it seems to be going all right and everything then it just says it didnt get an answer and then thats about it. I have no clue of what to do at this point. I would be grateful for any help I might get. By the way im using Windows 98 and the modem is a HPS56 MicroModem. Thanks.

in the 'Call preferences' disable 'Wait for dial tone before dialing'.
i had a problem with this setting at home and i think this may help you. Don't forget to restore if it doesn't work. :)
