Answers :

Hello Mikenrgrsvll

This problem can\015\012be due to the software not handling a certain dial tone rather than a\015\012specific hardware fault. Around the world there is a variance in the\015\012signal quality of the dial tone which causes a report of no dial tone\015\012detection. Disable the dial tone detection to prevent the system from\015\012trying to detect a dial tone.
\015\012 Disabling dial tone detection for modems:
\015\012 Windows XP\015\012\015\012
  1. Click Start
  2. \015\012
  3. Select Control Panel
  4. \015\012
  5. Click Switch to Classic View to change the control panel view
  6. \015\012
  7. Click Phone and Modem Options
  8. \015\012
  9. Select the Modem Tab
  10. \015\012
  11. Select the installed modem (Example: Lucent Technologies Soft Modem AMR)
  12. \015\012
  13. Click the Properties button
  14. \015\012
  15. Select the Modem tab in the Properties window
  16. \015\012
  17. Click Wait for dial tone before dialing to remove the check from the checkbox
  18. \015\012
  19. Select the Advanced tab
  20. \015\012
  21. Add X3 to the Extra initialization commands field in the Extra Settings box
  22. \015\012
  23. Click OK twice
  24. \015\012
  25. Select Switch to Category View to change back the control panel view
  26. \015\012
  27. Close Control Panel
