Modem will not hang up.
Posted on 2001-09-09
My modem will not hang up. If I make a call and there is no answer, the modem will not hang up unless I disconnect the phone line from the modem at the back of the computer. I have a phone connected serially to the modem, and if I pick up the phone to get a dial tone, I get the dial tone, but when I hang up the phone, the modem will not disconnect unless I disconnect the line from the modem.
When the modem goes to connect, it works fine, but it will not hang up.
The phone line is also used by other telephones that are wired in parallel, could this have anything to do with it?
Also, is there an option somewhere where I could disconnect the modem with a mouse click? It's a real pain having to disconnect the phone line everytime I want to hangup.
