    I am attempting to configure PC-Alarm and Security System. Part of this program allows for notifying me via cell phone if one or more of the residence smoke alarms have gone off, alarms for the doors, or someone is attempting to gain access to our home computer. The test fails because it needs a modem supporting voice communications. I am not sure whether our modem does, or does not support voice communications. I do know that our present modem is>PCTEL 2304WT V.9x MDC Modem.

    We operate an Inspiron 8200 w/XP.

    Sincerely,

    This is strange. I just spent half an afternoon trying to get a PC Tel recognised as a MODEM rather than just a PC Card or a PCI Simple Communications Device and when I finally managed it, the system tried to install a MODEM Wave Device along with it. I didn't bother stopping it - I was just happy to have the MODEM capability but there are no microphone or speaker sockets on this MODEM so I assume the same drivers go with both types of PCI MODEM.
