Name

Phone and Modem Options — \windows\system\telephon.cpl

Synopsis

Control Panel [Printers and Other Hardware] Phone and Modem Options

Used to connect to the Internet (unless you have DSL or a cable modem) and send and receive faxes, your modem is configured in this Control Panel dialog. The modems listed here are the same as those listed in the Modems branch in Device Manager, so if your modem doesn't appear, its driver has not been properly installed.

TIP

Dialing problems are often caused by improper dialing rules; make sure your area code and call waiting settings are correct. Multiple locations should be configured if you have a portable computer and need to dial out from within different area codes or from varying phone numbers with different dialing requirements.
