I have a modem problem. I'm running WinMe I just recently upgraded from Win98 original and didn't have this problem. The situation is that when ever I receive a long distance phone call & my computer is on, the modem tries to communicate or connect for some reason. This only happens for inbound calls if I make a call it doesn't happen. I searched for WinMe drivers but they don't seem to have solved the problem. Also I bought Jane's USAF simulator and I think that that maybe involved. My modem and driver info is:

56K V.90 ITU Fax Modem w/Voice Mail
(Rochwell Chipset)

5614Jx3(G) Internal
(Driver)

Thanks.

You have an 'auto answer' set for your modem. I'm at work and can't check the control panel for the exact settings, but the modem has a setting for auto-answer meaning it will try to answer the phone call. You want it set to off. The is an AT command for this that can be added to the init string for the modem if no other option.
See if this helps any and I can check later for ways to set this. Keep us updated.

SG............go into your modem properties and type this in the extra settings box.
ATSO=0 to get to the setting box.
cntrl panel/modems/ modems tab,highlight your modem click properties,advanced tab.
let us know if this works or not.
good luck.;)
