PC Card Modem Issues

Post by JMEaT » Mon Dec 29, 2003 4:49 pm

I've tried 3 modems. The 1st 2 had hardware failures. The 3rd one is brand new, with latest drivers. It picks up the line and there is a dial tone then it dials the 1st number of the ISP and hangs up saying "there was no answer.

Please offer any advice, I'm about to throw the laptop through the window...... Image Image Image Image Image

Make sure to disable call waiting on the line.

JMEaT, what OS is on there. I had a similar problem in 2k and XP if I disable the services that control dial up if you need to know them let me know and I well look them up again.

The OS is Win2K. No service packs (yet). Fresh install.

I haven't touched the services, but if you want to list them that may help Image

Well, I took back the pc card modem and bought an external usb powered modem. Works like a charm.
