I just purchased a new Accelerator Pro 56000 Internal Voice Fax Modem. My Operating Systems are a dual boot WIN95/WINNT 4.0. I connect to the Internet through WIN95. I had a 33.6 modem which worked fine, but was to slow. The new modems problem is when I try to connect to My ISP you hear a dial tone, but before it starts to dial, I hear a click, then a error message pops up (No Dial Tone, Check...etc). I had to re-install my 33.6 to go on line. Any suggestions? I think it might be a faulty modem because the old one works fine after I re-installed it(33.6)

Change your modem settings to ignore dial tone.

I'm going to give the points to rbr. Though someone else touched MY COMPUTER and cause more problems which wouldn't allow even my 33.6 modem to connect. I re-installed the 56k from scratch, step by step and it works?? I'm not going to question it though
