    I pluged catch-a-call to my computer. I made sure that call waiting is enabled on my computer, had call waiting service from my phone company, have typed in "s10=254" to make the computer wait on hold, and had all the wires in the right place.

    The problem is that it doesn't ring when im on the internet. I know my call waiting is working because I have call wave and it picks up the messages. I tried closing callwave and still, the "catch-a-call" doesn't ring.

    Please help! p.s... yes I did hear about the bad reviews about emerson switchboard and catch-a-call, but i heard success of people having their little device ring. please help me!

    Hi There!

    Is your modem "V.92 compliant???

    Does your ISP support "Net Waiting???


    those things will be needed to get your stuff working correctly.


    Good Luck!

    nevermind.. i found the problem. I had"call forward on busy" instead of "call waiting".

    oh yeah... i found catch a call to work perfecly fine and does everything it promises it would do. So I would definetly recomended it if people cant afford a second line or have access to cable or dsl internet.
