Have you changrd anything in your computer or has this just happened all of a sudden?

Do you have the lastest modem drivers?
Did you run modem diag. from control panel/modems see if it responds with no trouble?

Have you tried (in safe mode) to delete the modem and any duplicates and reinstall.

What I suggest doing is a test in Hyperterminal.  If your internet is a 16-bit application set up a new location to the com port your modem is installed.  If it is a 32-bit internet application use the software driver and choose a phone number at your house or cell phone and see if it dials and hangs.  If it hangs at hyperterminal then you probably have a modem hardware issue.  Other things to check are the dialing properties, *70 call waiting, wait for dial tone before dialing.  Has your area changed to ten-digit dialing.  Does it say that it is connected and then hangs?  Last thing:  in the advanced settings area in the modem properties found in control panel.  Place an &f in the 'Extra Settings' box.  This will set your modem back to the factory defaults.  Good Luck!!!!

is it possible that your machine isnt really hanged, but only the mouse?
if thats the case, you may have a mouse/modem conflict.
you will need to move one of them to a different com port.
the mouse is usealy easier to move (just plug it to the other link, if its possible).

Hope it helps.
