I'm asking for a friend who can't get his Internet access up and going.  The Mac he's using has an internal modem, and he's using FreePPP.  When he tries to dial, it pauses and gives an error box saying "Modem does not seem to be responding.  FreePPP was expecting an OK.  May not be on, or not ready.  Power off and on again."  But it's an internal modem, and should already be powered on!  Could there be a control panel he's overlooked in his setup steps?

The usual with that error message is that the init string doesnt match up with the modem. Try changing it to AT&FS0=0 (those are zeros). That resets your modem to factory defaults and the s0=0 is just there cus some modems like it. That string works with almost all modems (i havent come across a modem that it doesnt work with). If that doesnt work try reseating the modem in the slot or if its a global village modem try loading only the GV extensions.
