Hi, on this current computer using win2k I have had problems with 2 modems when dialing, after pressing connect the modem noise is often very dirty and distorted sounding. Very rarely if I leave it to run will it ever connect. It sounds horrible and is not isolated to one modem. The phone shares the same line and has a message service that must be cleared before use, but even once cleared may still not work.

More often than not I turn on comp and press IE shortcut and then press connect, sometimes Ive found it best to open another program 1st or reboot to get a clean signal from the modem.

Works great once connected as I am now.

Any ideas???

Hi,

Do you have a friend or relative that uses a different dial-up ISP? If so, then try dialing-in and connecting to their account.

I'm guessing that the 2 modems you tried were different makes/models, so I think you can rule out a driver or hardware problem.....

You could also try taking your system over to someone else's house (I know, this is a pain in the butt), however, it would allow you to determine whether or not the problem is with your physical line.

Just a couple of suggestions.....
