I have an external usr 56k message modem connect to my pc. Its automaticaly detected and all the driver is install propaly, also a proper phone line(with a dialtone) is connected to the jack. But everytime i try to connect to the internet, the dailer just report that "there is no dialtone and please check the cable." both win 2000/98 having the same problem.
Then i borrow an internal modem and install to my pc. all the installation process is ok. But the internal modem is having the same result, "no dialtone" when i try to dial.
I didn't play any overclock on any path of my hardware.
i tried to dial the modem without waiting for the dailtone but the result still the same.
I tried reinstall the win98, but it still wouldn't dail.
The line and the phone is connect to the modem in the RIGHT socket.
No "!" or "X" on my device manager.
