MODEM ANNOYANCES

MODEM WON'T DIAL OUT

The Annoyance:

I can't get my modem to dial out. I hear a click followed by the number tones, but I don't hear a dial tone. I don't see anything wrong in the Device Manager.

The Fix:

You've probably got a problem with the telephone line. First, plug a telephone into the wall jack using the same phone cord that you plugged into the modem. Verify that you get a dial tone. If not, then there's a problem with the telephone cord, the phone line, or the jack. Try another telephone cord first. If that doesn't work, contact your local phone company and report the problem.
